Silver telephoon fed

06 Oct

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

Jack Warner for sure wasn`t born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Matter of fact he had to toughen himself up as a street kid. These street smarts helped tremendously later on when he made Warner Bros. Studios a major force in film. Once at top of Tinseltown, he never looked back. His stick was that of a penny pinching, horny- corney jokes telling and lavishly living movie mogul.
He had a silver telephone in his office and a hand written register to go with it. Many flynntimos are on the pages shown.
Both items are on display at the American History Museum in Washington, D.C.

“If these torn pages could talk…!”

Enjoy,

— shangheinz

    Whe, or if, the streets ever clear up again in DC, I’d love to see this – especially is they’d me flip through the alphabet . I’d bet it’s chock full of “flynntimos”,. I wonder if he ever made a move on Miss Dynamita. He certainly had her number … or was it the other way around, dialheinz?

    Pop Flynn knew the address, too.

    P.S. I visited this house a few years back. Did not get inside, but the exterior appeared to be largely original, though renovated. I believe this is where Lili and Sean lived right before they left permanently for Palm Beach.

      The two pages alone show some major players of Hollywood`s flynntourage, Popeye Tim: Bada__ Bette, Lady Livvie and Uncle Walt to mention but a few. The inscriptions must go way back, since La Dynamita is listed as MISS!
