Dozens of Dirty Rumors

Dozens of dizzy rumors floating about Warners efforts to get Errol back in town in a hurry for Because of a Man. One yarn is that Errol is quite ill and unable to return and another is that Warners are unable to contact him because his boat has no wireless. However, the studio says he is expected to put in at Bahamas tomorrow where Warners will have a telephone line held open to tell him to fly home. The studio has shot around him just as long as they can and there’s still another rumor that if he isn’t reached, they’ll start casting about for another hero.

Would it be Warners’ own Dick Powell?

Or perhaps MGM’s Melvyn Douglas?

Or would they pick someone whose name sounded more like Errol Flynn’s?

    I’m not sure Robin was available twinarchers. Besides, having long been well into his Middle Ages by 1938, he most likely would have been regarded by Warners as a tad too old for Errol’s part.
