ERROL FLYNN TAKEN TO HOSPITAL IN SERIOUS ILLNESS

Still seriously ill, Errol Flynn, motion picture actor,  rallied sufficiently today to permit his being transferred from his Beverly Hills home to the Good Samaritan Hospital.

The change was made under the direction of his physician, Dr. T. M. Hearn. Dr. Hearn said the actor needed care and attention more readily available at the hospital.

Flynn is suffering from influenza, complicated by an infection of the throat and respiratory organs and a recurrence of malarial fever, which he contracted five years ago in New Guinea.

Studio reports attributed Flynn’s illness to the fact that he refused to use a double in flying scenes in the picture Dawn Patrol on which he was working.

Flynn was removed to the hospital on the orders of Dr. T. M. Hearn.

Dr. Doyle James, throat specialist, was called in consultation by Dr. Hearn, in an attempt to solve the mystery of the streptococci and the continued high fever which is now 102 degrees.
