Classic Stars Match Play # 5 - Errol Flynn vs Tyrone Power (for the ladies..)

For the next match in my series of classic stars competing against each other comes two dashing swashbucklers...Mr. Errol Flynn and Mr. Tyrone Power. Ladies, control yourself. This match will start tonight and run through the whole week giving everyone time to think about who they love the most out of these two men. Their films, their talent and I'm sure looks will play a part in some of the decision making.
