From our mailbag:
Here is a great website on the fabled Hollywood Racquet Club. Fortunately only a couple of outlying buildings burned. The Bamboo Lounge and restaurant are still intact.
I mentioned in my reply that I see Linda Christian, a protege of Errol’s on the site, and Paul tells me: “Flynn ‘discovered’ Linda in Acapulco and bought her to Hollywood where with the help and power of President Aléman, she was able to break into movies.”
There’s a lot more Paul could say!
