Motion Picture Daily

“Errol Flynn left Hollywood yesterday for a two-week vacation in Boca Raton.”

—-

When Flynn visited Boca in those days, a town of only a few thousand residents before WWII, he was known to visit the world famous Boca Raton Resort, Cap’s Place restaurant and casino (where FDR and Churchill dined during there planning their taking down of Hitler and Hirohoto),and the legendary Delray Arcade Tap Room, all still here and all pictured below. He also fished off the coast of Ft. Lauderale, and is said to have also liked hunting in the Everglades.

“ILLEGAL PASSAGE”

“ERROL FLYNN NAMES PALS IN HIS ORIGINAL PLAY WRITTEN FOR FILM”

Errol Flynn has drawn from his own private circle of cronies for many of the characters of his new original screen play entitled Illegal Passage, intimates of the Warner star have disclosed.

One, for example, is named “Big” Thompson. He is a former Texas cowboy, rough and tough, but with a heart as big as his frame. He’s the principle character’s best friend. Another of Flynn’s closest friend’s is Guinn (Big Boy) Williams, former Texas cowhand turned motion picture actor. And the description fits like a glove.

Another character bears the name of Bud Ernest. Friends pointed out that Flynn’s flying companion and his close friend for many years is Bud Ernst, former stunt flyer and now a radio promotion executive.

Several other characters of the story – the nature of which is being kept a close secret – bear striking resemblance to other members of Flynn’s intimate circle. There is even a comic, friends say, by the name of John Byer, who might be John Meyer, Flynn’s demon promoter pal.

Flynn’s story is now being read by Warners.
