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.)
