Sean Flynn


For years, Sean Flynn lived in the shadow of his golden-age Hollywood father, Errol Flynn. He tried acting for a time, but with little success, as most of his pictures turned out to be flops. He got his big break, however, not with a film, but with the Vietnam War. He signed up to be a photojournalist and was sent to Vietnam, consistently sending back chilling photos of the war that helped spur the anti-war movement.

On April 6, 1970, however, that all came to an end. He and journalist Dana Stone went to take photographs at a Viet Cong checkpoint and were never seen or heard from again. Sadly, it’s not hard to imagine what happened to them.
