Errol Exposed – about what? No date as usual! And the picture is reversed! His hair parting in pictures is on the left not on the right side! Does anybody know anything about this publication?
I was watching the “Pocketful of Rye” episode from the recent MARPLE series and there's a great scene where Miss Marple charms the local inspector into letting her help with the case by commenting how handsome he is and telling him how much he resembles Errol Flynn. The inspector happily strokes his Flynn-esque mustache and, of course, allows Miss Marple to help with the investigation.
I would like to ask if any of you know this hand-coloured etching created by the Hungarian artist Gerson Kovacs. You are probably familiar with the name of Josef Fegerl who published the book about Flynn and Erben. Mr Fegerl also commissioned this limited series of 99 numbered signed prints. It'd be interesting for him to know where they “went”, or where they are today. I would be grateful for any information, also via e-mail. Thanks!
I haven't got the foggiest idea if this above mentioned short MGM (1935), 2 reel film has been discussed before? If so, well, no need to comment I suppose.

Producer/director Kent Hagen reports a major find– he has sighted Errol in the 1950 film noir HIGHWAY 301. He is hanging out in the background of one of the scenes. Since Errol was friends with the film's star Steve Cochran, we assume Errol decided to pop into the movie on a lark. Has anyone else out there seen Errol in this film?
HIGHWAY 301 is currently available on DVD from Warner Archives. Check it out!
