In January 1959, Fidel Castro led his Cuban revolutionaries into Havana. It’s a huge story, and Front Page Challenge has found an unlikely mystery guest: Errol Flynn, a Hollywood actor in the twilight of his career. Famed for playing dashing swashbucklers, Flynn put on a reporter’s hat while in Cuba for the revolution. Despite rumours he fought alongside the rebels, Flynn tells the panel he “didn’t pick up anything more dangerous than a ballpoint pen.”
