Signature of the times

07 Apr

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

we often wondered aloud on the blog, which of the many signed cheques, autographs and contracts bore the real signature of Errol.

If we assume that at different times his business procurator Al Blum, third wife Pat Wymore and young assistent Ronnie Shedlo took over the duties of signing off for Flynn, there are plenty of documents for sale that make you question its origin.

Furthermore it is safe to say that everybody’s handwriting varies under the influence over the years.

Now this is meant to be a forum to compare memorabilia with our Hollywood hero’s lettering and to assign a certificate of Flynnticity.

Back to you.

Enjoy,

— shangheinz

dear signheinz,

At 19:09 in this video is seen a signature unquestionably by Errol – possibly the only one witnessed (by millions) with 100% certainty to be by Errol’s own hand.
