A Crazy Idea?

20 Apr

Hello everybody,

first I'd like to thank you all for the warm welcome you gave me. It feels good to be member of such a great community!

Then I would like to make a suggestion. Maybe it's crazy, but this idea has been on my mind for some time and I think it'd be quite unique…Why don't we create an “Errol Flynn Calendar” together? Meaning that we try to make a kind of “list” or overview of what Errol did every day of his life? For example, today is April 20th, and you could go to this site we'd create and have a look: Oh, today 60 years ago, Errol did this and that… He was shooting this or that film, had a party in the evening… What do you think? Possible? Crazy?

My second question for today: I read this wonderful book “Errol Flynn Slept Here” and I was wondering: who was the guy that eventually destroyed Mulholland House? His name is not mentioned, probably because he would have a hard time then? Is the name known at all?

Well, take care everybody and thanks for reading this!

— Inga

Hi Inga, Regarding the first question: a calendar/list of dates pertaining to Mr. Flynn's activities and/or whereabouts is an excellent idea—as long as each bit of information cites one or more sources. The problem is how to organize the data in such a way that it is web-friendly—both easy to read and easy to edit. That would have to be someone else's job! Anyhoo, I've got lots of dates that are not to be found in any of the biographies. Here's one to start: we know that Flynn tested more than once for the lead in CAPTAIN BLOOD—yet not one… Read more »

I have a voluminous day-to-day chronicle of EF's entire life that I have been continuously compiling for several years, if anyone is interested. It even includes his daily work schedule with what scenes (and where) he was filming on any particular day. I've thought of posting it here, but since it is changing and expanding regularly it seems like a pointless exercise.

Hi Inga;
Robert has given us the answer in a reply in the Bambi article, his name was Steve Weiss, see my article – New interest in 7740 Mulholland Drive. We may get all the answers yet!

Wow, are you serious? I am interested and I'm sure the rest of us are too. I can't imagine what his schedule was like. Does it provide any personal appointments like dates, parties, or what he was doing when not at the studio? You could give us an interesting tid-bit about a day every day. That certainly would be worth looking at, to see what he was doing every day. I do have a trivial question though, what size shoes did Errol wear and what size pants and suits did he wear? Just curious, Tammy.

of course there is someone interested! and certainly not only me… that's exactly what i meant, but would you give it away like that? i mean, it was certainly so much work, but it'd be great as a basis. or maybe you would even send it to people interested, i don't know? if all of us had it, we could make the changes together maybe?

I'm not sure I want to post the chronicle; for one thing, it's LONG. I'll have to think about it and perhaps discuss it with Captain DeWitt.

Sounds absolutely EPIC, Rob!
I for one would love to see your work (a date freak am I) but empathize with the labour that posting it would entail.
Cheers!
