    Well for me the dress in the first photo is the most beautiful
    and I am sure Mr Flynn liked it too. The cut and style of this dress suited Olivia so well. The fact that this dress is nightwear would also have appealed to Mr Flynn.

    My favourite is her pretty pink & red outfit.

    But yes I agree that Errol’s favourite probably was the nightie and long plaits look.

    I like the 1st one as well – beautiful. I think it shows Olivia off to the best advantage. I understood that she had some input into her costumes – is that true?

    I have been curious as to whether Errol had visited any parts of Canada other than Toronto (for Front Page Challenge Show) and the ill fated trip to Vancouver. I did find the following in my search. This was an article about a lady who met Errol at Northampton and I hope it is Ok to post the information. The Ottawa Little Theatre was a mainstay in years gone by and the lady’s name was Florence Fancott. “As she grew older, she went on to work for the North Hampton Repertory Theatre. There, she worked with the likes of the famed Errol Flynn.
    “Errol was a heartthrob of the ’30s. She was very young and he was very old, but they had a role in the play together,” said her daughter, XXXXXX.
    “She said he was charming … he said she did a good job.” How sweet!

      Wonderful discovery, Maria. … Here’s Errol as Joe Varwell, in “Yellow Sands”, the comedy they were in together in Northhampton.

      Here’s a summary of her life, though, reportedly being born in 1910, Errol wasn’t really “much older” than Flo. Her being said to be very shy, and the young Mr. Flynn having traveled & experienced much the world already, it probably just seemed that way to her. She sounds to have been a tremendous person. Thanks Maria!!

    Thank you for all the wonderful responses, Ladies!!!! Maybe the men are waiting for one of Livvie in a Medieval two-piece. (That’s a Middle Ages humor.)

    Here’s a site providing some terrific info & images on Livvie’s Maid Marion gowns, including a reference to a video where she speaks about her costumes in TAO-RB:

    My favorite two might be the archery dress & green nightgown, but there’s so many remarkable ones. I wonder where they are now! Here’s one from Louis Kraft’s great site:

    Thank you very much! I would think that anyone that young would think anyone else past 20 would be “older”!
    There was a book written quite a while ago regarding the Front Page Challenge Show (a very popular show in Canada) and describes Errol’s visit to the studio. Perhaps you are already aware?
