Movie Stars from WWII – Errol Flynn & Martha O’Driscoll

27 Jul

From Russel Ries blog The Only New Thing: a recent correspondence results in an interesting post about Errol and Martha O’Driscoll on a USO Tour and Olivia de Havilland, too! You knew a lot of people must have taken photos of them during these tours but how many have you seen? Thanks to Russel Ries for a nice article and discovery of some rare photos …

Errol Hanging at the LaMaze

22 Jul

Hi Everyone,

Here’s a current interior photo of the Café LaMaze, one of Errol’s legendary stops on his way by car to Mexico in the ’40s.  In fact, he attended its opening night, and gambled in its secret upstairs casino.   Clark Gable, John Wayne, Rita Hayworth (who lived nearby when she danced at Caliente), Lana Turner,  Bing Crosby, Jimmy Durante, Johnny Weismuller, and many other celebs, all frequented here.  Marcel Lamaze was a renowned Hollywood chef.
