COMMEMORATING THE 55TH ANNIVERSARY OF 1957’s “THE SUN ALSO RISES”

26 Aug

While watching TCM– North America–a USA cable channel and their tribute to Tyrone Power (they had already paid tribute to Mr. Flynn on the anniversary of his birth) I realized while watching “The Sun Also Rises” that it has been 55 years since Errol gave one of his career defining performances as “Mike Campbell”. So here’s to Errol Flynn’s “Mike Campbell”. Bung Ho, old boy!–A. R.

Errol Flynn Cufflinks for sale via Private Collector!

19 Aug

Errol Flynn Cufflinks!

Offering for sale from my extensive Hollywood memorabilia collection, a set of unique, precious, outstanding and quite unusual 14 karat gold cufflinks, personally owned and worn by one of the most outrageous, highly talented and famous Hollywood screen legends in the history of film making. Therefore this incredible A-list actor needs no further introduction. Insiders know exactly the importance of this item which is now on offer. This is certainly a great opportunity to acquire this stupendous early vintage item!

As one can clearly see from the photos, apart from the extremely handsome design, the most remarkable feature is the beautifully scrolled  monogram ‘E F’, in the same style as found on other of his personal items. Without a doubt, this set of custom made cufflinks is extremely rare and belongs in a league of its own. It should be a MUST for the serious collector of Hollywood memorabilia and a valuable addition to any collection. Or even as a special gift for a very special person. Certainly these EF cufflinks will be the topic at any occasion!

The cufflinks are “block style” with the front being concave and with a kind of “frosted” etched surface, which makes the monogram really stand out, and makes a good contrast with the other shiny surfaces.

The blocks measure 1.4 cm ( 7/12″). The overall length of the cufflinks is 2,3 cm ( 11/12″) in closed position and 3 cm (1 1/4″) in open position. Each block and stem is hallmarked 14 K.

The condition is excellent for their age, with only the usual slight surface scratches, which look on the close-up pictures more pronounced than they really are. Both lever mechanisms work perfectly

Provenance

The set naturally comes with its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity stating: “This Certificate guarantees the Authenticity of the item described as genuine in its contents and origin. Errol Flynn.  A vintage pair of fourteen karat gold heavy block style cufflinks. Monogrammed.”

As a personal remark regarding this Hollywood memorabilia item which probably is one of few these days belonging in an extremely “hard-to-find” category that stands out on its own!

Many years ago I started to collect searching selectively for unusual items of well known artists, entertainers, actors and actresses who were famous in the days of Hollywood’s Golden Era, only dealing with bonafide and high profile specialists, companies, and agent-dealers. I sincerely hope that the fortunate buyer will find this particular celebrity item now on offer just as special and irresistible as I did after all these years carefully treasuring it.

You will notice, that for these remarkable gold cufflinks I do not provide the possibility to make an offer, because I think that the price I am asking, compared to some recent celebrity auctions, such as items from Tony Curtis, Debbie Reynolds, etc.  is quite justified.

The cufflinks and CoA will be sent by Registered Mail / Signed for Delivery within 1 working day after receipt of cleared payment. Insurance is optional, please enquire for quote.

Please note, that the buyer is fully responsible for any possible import charges, duties, taxes, levies etc. charged in his/her country, because as a seller I have no knowledge of those facts.

Because of the calibre of this item, or any of the other memorabilia items coming up for sale soon, personal pick-up by the buyer is of course possible, near Málaga in the South of Spain.

I will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Thank you for your interest.

I will also be releasing and selling other items soon of: Errol Flynn, Orson Welles, Spencer Tracy, Victor Mature, John Barrymore, etc.

Price: 5.650.00 Euros

Affinitea! Super Teas! Done that, got the T-Shirt!

17 Aug

These special teas have never been combined like this before! There are actually 6 different herbs involved in all three of these–they are listed on the label. If you Google these teas you will find they have degenerative disease reversing properties. Our goal should be to feel great each day while keeping our blood chemistry alkaline (diabetes cannot survive in an alkaline environment) and killing free radicals in our bodies (the cause of aging and all degenerative diseases). You get three of the world’s most potent Super Teas in one bag!

Robin Hood show at NYC’s Bryant Park to Huge Happy Crowd!

08 Aug

Our own Jim Turiello writes:

Last night at Bryant Park in the heart of New York City, The Adventures of Robin Hood delighted the thousands that attended. It was a total sell out, (even though it was free to the public.The movie was met with resounding cheers each and every time Errol Flynn did something magical. Loud applause filled the night air and at times, the crowd was silent, they were really, really into the movie. At the conclusion a standing ovation was giving with unbelievable enthusiasm. The most unusual fact about the showing was the average age of the people in attendence, to my pleasant surprise they were students and young adults, I was delighted that the new generations embraced Errol in a way that we have done our entire lives. There is great hope for Errol to capture the hearts and souls of all movie goers. I am in the process of getting more movies shown in the coming weeks.
Yours truly
Jim

Errol’s Master of Music

07 Aug

Years ago I was able to conduct a short interview with Andy Hamilton, a Jamaican musician who worked for Errol in the latter 1940’s before emigrating to England in 1949. If you like a bit of jazz you could do a lot worse than buy Andy’s two albums; Silvershine and Jamaica By Night.  Both are excellent and the title track of Silvershine was actually a piece of music written for Errol in the 40’s.  Silvershine was the biggest selling Jazz album of the year in 1991 and was voted The Times jazz album of that year.

Sadly Andy died in June of this year at the ripe old age of 94. He was made a Member of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queens New Years honours of 2008 for his services to music in his adopted home town of Birmingham ( UK ). 

When I spoke to him he didn’t have a bad word to say about Errol and dismissed any suggestion that he could have been a fascist sympathiser. There was one aspect of Errol’s life that he was unwilling to discuss with me and I suspect this was around Errol’s use of drugs during that period. He spoke with considerable amusement however about the girls who continually tried to get aboard the Zaca!

Anyway, check out Silvershine if you’ve not yet heard it.

Rest in peace Andy Hamilton MBE (26th March 1918 – 3rd June 2012)
