Just a couple of corrections to this Mulholland farm story about the ghost. Barrymore’s body wasn’t taken to Flynn’s house that was an idea they all had while they were all having dinner at Flynn’s. They were all drunk and you can read the story in Buster Wile’s book MY DAYS WITH ERROL FLYNN. It’s that night a drunken Raoul Wash believes it happen. He told the story so many times for the rest of his life that it became an urban legend. In 1978 to May of 1988, I was going up to Mulholland on a weekly if not… Read more »
