25 Nov

Our friend, Ralph Schiller, has partnered with author Gary Golts on a wonderfully good read called Doderick Crawford starring in Highway Patrol … (CP Entertainment Books 2019) a oversized softcover book full of amazing photos and script samples (complete list of shows), call sheets, toys, and 0ther memorabilia, even a replica car Gary Goltz created that he allows to appear in car shows across the country. The book has the complete history of the show, and other shows Broaderick Crawford appeared in after the show ended … it is one of those books you really get lost in once you open the pages!

Thanks, Ralph!

ERROL AT THE CLOVER CLUB

Ahem! Bob Taylor was out a-dancing with Ginger Rogers at the Clover Club!

And for someone just separated from his wife, Errol Flynn seemed to be having JULLY times at the same spot….

ERROL AT THE CAFE´ LAMAZE

Figure me this. On Wednesday night, Errol Flynn came into the Cafe´ Lamaze alone and ordered dinner. While it was cooking, he put in a long distance call to Palm Springs.  Oddly enough, the call was to Lili Damita.  And even more odd, when the two had finished talking, Flynn canceled his order for dinner and dashed off in a steaming hurry.

Fine goings on for an-about-to-divorced pair! Or are they?

ERROL & LILI AT THE BROWN DERBY

Even the best friends of Lili Damita and Errol Flynn are smiling at the story that broke today on their marital reconciliation. The story came as the result of the discovery of the pair at the Beverly Hills Brown Derby last night. They looked serene. News hounds bombarded them for a statement. Both know the value of publicity and gave them a statement.  But their close friends, knowing the fiery temperament of both, predict that the reunion will be of brief and stormy duration.

PUTTIN´ ON THE RITZ

The Lili Damita-Errol Flynn reconciliation takes on the aspect of a second honeymoon, or rather a first, as the two came right back to Hollywood after their elopement to Yuma. Through the studio, Errol has engaged the bridal suite at the Ritz Towers in New York, and is trying to get the same accommodations for his and Lili’s trip to Europe.
