Mail Bag! Cahill Interiors & Titchfield Hotel Check!

25 Jul

Errol/Titchfield Hotel

Hello, I just read your blog regarding the Titchfield Hotel. You mention a 10k check for the a/c. I happen to have a psa/dna certified cancelled check for $6437.54 paid to Cahill Interiors dated July 15, 1952. In the bottom left corner is written in Errol’s writing “Repairs a/c Hotel Titchfield.” I believe a/c means “and credit ” and not meaning air conditioning. And it’s then signed by Errol Flynn. I just thought I would write and let you know.

I enjoy reading your articles. I have often wondered if anyone knows what work Cahill Interiors did at the hotel for that this check paid for?

The check was signed: Cahill Interiors deposit to account Carol Parker Cahill. North Shore Bank, Miami Beach, Florida. Errol lived a fascinating life and I have certainly enjoyed watching his movies and seeing his many talents over the years. What an original.

Respectively,
Delaine Davis

 

Thanks, Delaine!

Fascinating, Delaine. Thank you very much.

North Shore Bank used to be a very cool Art Deco, and Carol Parker (Cahill) used to be a Hollywood actress. In fact, she was Sally Dawson in the 1944 Robin Hood-type Western starring Buster Crabbe and his horse Falcon! Titled “The Drifter” in the U.S.

Here she is on Falcon’s left!
