Out Like Flynn: Senor Fleen Sneaks Out Through the Banos Window

25 Apr

Hotel Florida

Party at the Hotel Florida! (… A Spanish Republican party at that!)

Gelhorn chasing Hemingway. Hemingway hitting Welles with a chair. Capa faking photos. The Duchess eating all the spinach. Philby spying for Stalin. Flynn sneaking out the bathroom window. F. Scott giving his highest praise.* Man, Errol got invited to (and skipped out of)the best parties!

* Doesn’t say so here, but I think John Dos Passos was hanging around the Hotel Florida in those days, too. In fact, didn’t he even write something about a bathroom there once? Heck, who knows, maybe that was the one Errol snuck out of!
