Ghostship Zaca II

14 Feb

dieu

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

while last time turned out to be an UFO sighting www.theerrolflynnblog.com…, this looks more like the rail deal.

Errol rented out his beloved yacht amongst others to Rita Hayworth and her pauper prince Aly
Khan, Mary Pickford and Orson Welles.

Check out the schooner at the 0:47 mark in the trailer of Roger Vadim`s frenetic flic “And God created woman”- do we have a Zaca Vu here?

Here is the whole film:

Enjoy,

— shangheinz

    Blog member and ultimate intimate Flynnmate Ventu Sala (www.theerrolflynnblog.com…) got back to me on the Zaca Morgana above. He writes:”The Zaca had a bigger boom and a white bow on the stern, she was bigger overall.” That means its´s back to the headmast for me. Interesting though that the mothership fathered so many copy cat boats.

      Great swing, zacaheinz. Just a number of feet (and possibly port holes) foul.

      One thing that may differentiate Zaca from all or most others is the arch on the stern, dating from its earliest days in San Fran, through (I think) the entire Flynn Era, as with Arnella, Orson, Rita and Chula below.

        Can’t tell you why the photo links above are intermittent, but here are some more images of the arch on the stern:

        Here it is in a less ghostly form, spectreheinz. For some reason unknown to me, it never made it through moderation. Perhaps it was too ghastly.

    Great try Heinz but it is not the Zaca! The Zaca has an entirely different stem and also seems to be larger and with more portholes.
    Here is the Zaca:

      Dearest Torontina, it would have been quite a find (out) that Errol rented his schooner unbeknownst to Brigitte Bardot and Curt Jurgens. Yet the similarity between the boats is startling…
