A very rare shot of Errol…

Steve Hayes' book Googies, Coffee Shop to the Stars was read by a Canadian gentleman named Barry McMahon who sent Steve this rare pic of Flynn at the Vancouver Airport speaking to a reporter…

Tip O' the Hat to both Steve and Barry…

    That's rare indeed. Haven't seen it.
    Considering Errol would be dead shortly after this was taken, he's not looking particularly ill.

    The reporter's name is John Arnett.
    Here's a link to a 2007 article about Mr. Arnett; there's a different photo of him with Flynn at the Vancouver airport:
    cache.zoominfo.com…
    Whew! Quite the link.
    The photo above (reproduced in Backstage Vancouver) is available from the Vancouver Public Library:
    www3.vpl.vancouver.bc.ca/dbtw-wpd/exec/dbtwpub.dll?AC=GET_RECORD&XC=/dbtw-wpd/exec/dbtwpub.dll&BU=http%3A%2F%2Fwww3.vpl.vancouver.bc.ca%2Fspe%2Fhistphotos%2F&TN=PHOTOS&SN=AUTO1134&SE=1421&RN=0&MR=5&TR=2000&TX=1000&ES=0&CS=0&XP=&RF=briefweb&EF=&DF=Full+Photo&RL=0&EL=0&DL=0&NP=2&ID=&MF=&MQ=&TI=0&DT=&ST=0&IR=11813&NR=0&NB=0&SV=0&BG=&FG=&QS=&OEX=ISO-8859-1&OEH=ISO-8859-1…
    That one's even worse! If it doesn't work, go to the Vancouver Public Library website and search the Historical Photo collection.
    (Backstage Vancouver also includes a 1978 photo of Ginger Rogers, taken by me. I asked her if she'd met Errol Flynn but she said she'd only met him casually, at parties.)
    Cheers, Fellow Flynn Fans!
