Flynn himself had a bit of a "live fast, die young" attitude that befit stars back then as ill as it does today, and eventually led to him getting fewer and fewer roles as he became less and less reliable and handsome and more and more a drunkard. He lived life to the extreme, as is evidenced by his statutory rape trial in 1942, which led to the coinage of the expression "In like Flynn" when he beat the rap. Among his other passions were boating, fighting, and drinking.

When told that he could not bring alcohol to the movie set any longer he started to eat lots and lots of oranges... [[TheAlcoholic that he had previously injected with vodka]]. He died at the age of fifty, after he had finally gotten a few roles such as in Creator/ErnestHemingway's ''The Sun Also Rises'' and ''Too Much, Too Soon'', a {{Biopic}} of Flynn's friend, Creator/JohnBarrymore that showed that he could indeed act in serious roles as opposed to merely [[{{Swashbuckler}} swashbuckling]].
