The Hearst heist

17 Jun

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

we were searching high and low, down and out all over the Lady from Shanghai for a fleeting Flynn: www.theerrolflynnblog.com…
Can it be we were denied another escapist Errol at William Randolph Hearst`s Circus Birthday Party?
The obscured fella in the back passing by the massive mogul`s table with Gable has an utmost resemblance with the fabulous Gentleman Jim.
Your educted guesses are very welcome.

The game is aflynn,

— shangheinz

    Good eye, zircusheinz! Sure looks possible!

    We know that Flynn and Niv were both there, both dressed as the lowest of circus workers, the poor souls on the “shovel brigade” tasked with cleaning up after the circus elephant, i.e. W.R. Perhaps, however, Errol had an alternate outfit.

    Using your superb technical skills, can you see if this mystery man’s left ear matches Errol’s?

      It`s either Errol`s ear or Niv`s neck that can steer us clear here, Castleman Tim.

        The heist is heating up if we take Niv`s backhead hairline into account, Gentlemag Tim. I wonder if LIFE Magazine ran a piece on the party with a Flynniv photo in it?

          Well, heistheinz, I think you correctly pegged that figure and walk as being very much like Flynn. For me, it’s only the ear that appears off. Personally, I don’t see Nivin stridin’ with that particular brand of athletic aplomb or swagger.

          Perhaps it is Flynn, and if so, he’s likely to be running after and/or from some PYT. Perhaps even M.D.’s “neice”, Patricia, who had a San Simeon-sized crush of Errol. Indeed, they’re even writing new musicals about her lust for EF.

          According to my Hearst Caste tour guide two or so years ago, Errol was the only guest ever known to violate every one of Hearst House rules. Dorothy Parker apparently did an outstanding job of getting kicked out of the Castle, too.

              The operetta should feature a disguised Davis as Redbeard as well as Flynn friend and Gentleman Jim co-star John Loder (aka Mr. Hedy Lamarr), who according to his own indiscretion went the whole nine yards with Marion Davies on the rugs of San Simeon. Could it be that Errol took the fall for it, Castleman Tim?

                  “It’s not what they say about you, it’s what they whisper…” Errol provides us with spicey stories up to this day and Gentlechef Tim serves us a new “Dish of Day” every day. Thanks for the kudos, A-Tone!

                The plot thickens, hirsuteheinz, as has Bette’s beard in her suit of pseudo-pirate stripes. Davies Dagwood daughter enters stage right, with no apparent stage fright.

                  From the sfcv web sight: “Patricia craves the narcissistic movie star Errol Flynn, who has been invited along with his current squeeze, Bette Davis”.

                  How many things are wrong with that sentence?

                  1, I never picked up on Flynn being narcissistic. Concerned about his appearance yes, but not narcissistic at all. 2, And if he ever wanted to “squeeze” Bette Davis it was with his fingers around her neck.

                  Ok, so this is obviously a farce. But it puts forth an image of Flynn that has not the slightest basis in fact, and could add to the many misconceptions that are out there about him.

                  On the plus side, that picture of Kim Long as Bette Davis is a sure cure for the public embarrassment a fellow might get during his first visit to a nude beach.

                    Well, Tony, at least they got Errol and his wardrobe perfect.

                    Poor Errol. Working for Warners could be hell.

                      Tim, the link you posted isn’t working for me. It could just be my computer, but it may be the link. Just letting you know so you can check the link if you think there’s a problem.

                  For the sake of sale, I expect a stage fight close to a Ballroom Brawl between Bit__slap Bette and The Earl of __sex. In real life though those two primadonnas were merely fencing cheek to cheek, Don’t you think Gentleump Tim?

                    Buona Sera, Mr. Campbell. I don’t want to be catty, so I’ll just say I believe Errol and Arno enjoyed Bette equally.

                      Sorry about the link not working, Tony. It was to a photo from E&E with Errol looking like he’s in terrible pain about having to hug Queen Bette.

                      Buon giorno, Major Tim. After the Hearst heist, there’s a new case to chase. I call it the “Paul overhaul”. It features another Mr. Campbell:
