      Hi zacal!
      No none of those, but please keep on guessing!
      Another hint, it is connected to an Errol movie.

      Love that picture!
      Good guess Tim, but not quite what I am looking for.

        Is it Errol playing cricket for the Hollywood team?

          Yes, he was! This pic was taken in Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada, at a spot that still exists. You can’t see it, but a hallway is behind the group leading to a race track and beyond it are the cricket fields where they played. The vine covered Sylvia Hotel is not far, where Errol stayed, and across the street from the hotel is English Bay where he would have no doubt visited. This is the same bay that he would have seen from the penthousr apartment at 1310 Burnaby Street on the day he sufferred his fatal heart attack October 14, 1959. Walking along the beach, that apartment is justa 14 minute walk via Beach Avenue and Burnaby Street. I’ve visited the playing fields, and made that stroll several times over the years.

              Hi Lollie;
              Sorry for not answering sooner but I forgot about it. Very sorry! There is so much going on on the blog it’s amazing, in particular the quiz with Dakota Fanning kept me busy. I never knew that “Ally” has so many meanings.
              But in regards to your guess – good guess – but it is not what i am looking for.
              Take care!

      Hi Tim[
      Very sorry about my tardiness your quiz for Dakota kept me very busy and I forgot about my own. I search the internet high and low for answers but of no avail. Bette Davis’ husband was for me so close, but….

      In regards to my quiz you are very close but you are not quite there – keep trying for what I am looking.
      A clue for you it is in the title.

        Thank you, Tina.

        I believe it must be “The White Rajah”, with ‘tight’ referring to Queenie’s” description of Errol’s outfit when she met him, Lili, and Lili’s cat up in Hollywood Hills.

        Here’s how Errol & Tiger Lil looked in those days. They didn’t call it Lookout Mountain for nothing.

    This quiz is getting old and stale:
    The answer is:
    UNIFORM of The Charge of the Light Brigade
    Errol is in it! – THE UNIFORM

      Looking above at my photo above of Errol in his tight, elegant, white uniform representing the 27th Lancers Light Brigade, Tina, I may have to ask for a judge’s ruling on that one! LOL!!

        LOL Tim!
        “Here Comes The Judge” – Pigmeat Markham!

        Your comment: “Representing the 27th Lancers, Tina?”
        My adviset: “You are close”
        The required answer: “UNIFORM” from the movie ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade”

        Hear ye, hear ye, the court of swing
        Is just about ready to do that thing
        I don’t want no tears, I don’t want no lies
        Above all, I don’t want no alibis
        This judge is hip, and that ain’t all
        He’ll give you time if you’re big or small!

        Maybe I should have said:
        Keep going – plow ahead,
        think and transpose,
        You’re not lead by the nose!

          The greatest thing about these quizzes, Tina – at least from my perspective – is that they inspire exploration of things connected to Errol. Searching for the answer leads one to learn so much else, as it certainly has with your quiz. We now just about everything there is to know white, tight, elegant & British associated with Flynn! Thank you for that!!

            You are right there are always things still to learn about Errol and of course I love quizzes and what better ones than the ones about Errol.
