Huntington Hartford and Errol Flynn!

26 Aug

Here is a nice poster from Huntington Hartford’s production of The Master of Thornfield, and below an audio recording made with Errol by Tony Thomas who interviews him in the basement of another theatre for the Huntington Hartford produced Jane Eyre … the usual recording length is 24.56 but the version I found years ago is some eight minutes longer.

Grossinger’s “Waldorf of the Catskills”

Paul Grossinger was also the man who conceived and arranged the matchless Flynn’s famous tennis match in Manhattan, at the legendary Park Avenue Armory, on February 1, 1945. Based on Farmers’ Almanac historical records, I ,believe it was on the low to mid 20° that day in New York, therefore explaining Errol’s coat. (I was in that Armory during a couple of winters in the mid-70s, and can attest that the area where Errol played tennis was damp, drafty and cold.)

Sean Flynn in FIVE ASHORE IN SINGAPORE

18 Aug

In the Mail Bag we receive this nice inquiry from French film director Raphael Millet. Unfortunately, I do not have any hi res scans or photos of this poster and am wondering if any of you can help him out?  He writes:

Bonjour,

I found your contact on the Errol Flynn blog.

I am a French film director, producer and critic.

I love Errol Flynn’s movies.

I also have a passion for Sean Flynn, and great interest in the later part of his life (from 1965 onwards).

I am currently writing a long article about the movie FIVE ASHORE IN SINGAPORE for a magazine published in Singapore.

I have many images of it, including French lobby cards, posters in various languages. But I have no poster of the film in English, and I think this would be most relevant for a publication in English.

I noticed that you have a very nice poster in your collection (see image here attached).

Would it be possible to ask you for a very good high res copy or photo of it, if you have any, in order to have it reproduced in the magazine, together with my article?

It would be a nice way to celebrate Sean Flynn and to pay tribute to his Singaporean adventure.

In exchange, I’d be very happy to have a copy of the magazine being mailed to you, upon publication (around October).

Looking forward to your kind reply.

Raphael Millet
