“Errol Flynn has promised to be home November 11 from his Honolulu holiday.”

Yesterday’s late editions carried a one-paragraph story from London that will lift eyebrows in Hollywood. It quoted Lili Damita as follows:

“I’ve retired from film work forever. I’m going to settle down and be a wife and a mother.”

Only one thing that would have tilted the eyebrows higher—if Errol Flynn had said: “I’m going to settle down and be a husband and father.”

    As recorded by the S.S. Lurline Alien Passenger List above, Errol was signed in immediately ahead of “Alphonse Schnusenberg, Priest”. Friar Schnusenburg (O.F.M.) was a very prominent Franciscan missionary, one of the Order’s most significant officials of it’s “Far East” clergy.. He was especiially renowned for his work in China and Japan. Additionally, he visited and was in charge of Francisan missions in the most remote Sepik River regions of Papua, New Guinea. I wonder if he and Errol ever met and discussed their adventures or philosophies.

    Here is the O.F.M. coat of arms:
