Jim Turiello, up in Washington Heights, New York, where his favorite pastimes were playing football, baseball, basketball and bowling. In his spare time he went to the many movie palaces in his neighborhood. Jim writes a weekly sports column for BrianSmithRadio.com. Since the 80’s he has been a regular on numerous sports radio shows in the tri-state area.
As a prolific writer his contributions to music, movie and collectable magazines are too numerous to mention. Jim has authored a book Errol Flynn: The Quest for an Oscar is not a biography but a review and analysis of Errol Flynn’s ability to adapt to any role and the fact that he never duplicated the characters he portrayed. Errol was unique and contemporary, he lives on today. The book has his complete filmography as well as over 200 photographs.
