His film writing also won him a Best Screenplay award for Saturday Night at the Palace. His karate comedy movie Kill and Kill Again was a top box office hit in America. Bill's movie of Saturday Night at The Palace won several Vita Film Awards, a Best Actor award at the Italian Taormina Film festival as well as a Merit Award at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Flynn was also involved in the music world. He was a co-founder and band member of The Rock Rebels (1998–2007) and the lead singer for Vinnie and the Viscounts (1987–1997).

Sy Scholfield quotes "ASTRO PROFILE: BILL FLYNN (Sagittarius: 13 December 1948)" by Sandy Maxwell, Weekend Argus, 1 December 2007, p. 12: "He was a Sun Sagittarius with Aquarius Rising and Moon in Taurus. . . . Venus situated at Midheaven in his nativity primed him for an artistic career – certainly promised acclaim through creative endeavours."
