Best rib of the week was pulled off by producer Robert Lord on Warner Casting director Steve trilling. The day Errol Flynn was supposed to report for Dawn Patrol, Lord called Trilling and said the Irish star was on the phone from New York saying he had flown there and was taking an added week’s vacation. Then they pretended to transfer Flynn’s call to Trilling.

It was the perfect gag because Hollywood believes that Flynn would do anything.

Trilling’s blood pressure soared 20 points before the ribbers finally revealed that Flynn was sitting in Lord’s office.
