Published: February 5, 1954

FRANKFURT — Errol Flynn brought the house down tonight as he auctioned off a Lauren Bacall “surprise package” at a March of Dimes benefit.

At the EUCOM Hq-sponsored affair at the Casino, Flynn said, “I can’t tell the contents. (Bacall’s husband, Humphrey) Bogart forbids disclosure.”

Flynn was master of ceremonies at an informal show in which his actress wife, Patrice Wymore, and dark-haired film star Olga San Juan participated. All three donated their services.

The three arrived from Rome this afternoon via a 7167th Special Air Mission Sq C47 piloted by Capt Keith D. Hicks of Albuquerque, N.M., and with Capt A. T. Neiss of Wayzata, Minn., as copilot.

In addition to the surprise package, Flynn also raffled off photos of movie stars. Two airline tickets also were distributed as a door prize.

The crowd, estimated by to management at more than 900, jammed the main ballroom to watch the star-studded cast and listen to music supplied by the Air Force’s “Sky Tones.”

The Flynns brought along their 15-week-old daugther, Arnelia.

Cal George G, Garton, secretary of the Joint Staff, EUCOM Hq, won the door prize airline tickets and immediately offered them to be raffled off at the polio benefit.

Tis A Ship Mystery!

16 Aug

I keep looking at this ship in Flynn’s den at Mulholland and wondering what ship is this? Is it a replica of the BOUNTY? It is British? Is it some other ship Errol was interested in? Does anybody know?

Mystery Ship?
