Ringside with Bette & Errol

06 Aug

August 6, 1938

They are staging a prize-fight, vintage of 1905, for Warner Bros Picture, The Sisters.

Two old time fighters are in the ring and Bette Davis and Errol Flynn are sitting in the front row. Flynn plays a sports writer in the story and Bette is his wife. This is supposed to be the first fight she has ever seen and one of the boxers gets knocked out of the ring and practically into her lap. She is sickened and leaves the stadium.

Bette Davis isn’t a fight fan off the screen, either.

Mail Bag! Olivia deHavilland PRINCESS O’ROURKE!

25 Jul

From Karl Holmberg:

“Generally considered the film that caused Olivia de Havilland to sue Warner Brothers over contract rights. She won the lawsuit, resulting in California Labor Code Section 2855, informally known as the “De Havilland Law”.”

Gotta wonder if “Chas” (an Oscar winner for that year!) didn’t also help that along a little…

(According to Piper Laurie in her memoirs (Learning To Love Out Loud), Charles Coburn loved pinching women’s bottoms. It was for him like a tic. Every female under one hundred and five had to move fast around.)

Who May Olivia have Meant by This?

08 Jun

June 9, 1936

Harrison Carroll
Evening Herald Express

Now, who may Olivia de Havilland mean by this?

In an interview yesterday the youthful Warners star that she ‘could fall in love’ with one of the leading men she has had in pictures.

She insisted it was all theoretical, but Hollywood immediately began to count the lads over the fingers.

They consist of 5. The first was Dick Powell in A Midsummer’s Night Dream. The rest have been James Cagney in The Irish in Us, Joe E. Brown in Alibi Ike, Errol Flynn in Captain Blood and The Charge of the Light Brigade, and Frederic March in Anthony Adverse.

Even if she is just theorizing, Hollywood would like to know which is Olivia’s ‘type.’

Hats Off to Ronald Reagan

21 May

May 21, 1948

Sidney Skolsky
Hollywood Citizen News

Ronald Reagan: He is an actor who is interested in the welfare of actors and in their position in the industry. He has advanced from a supporting player to a leading man. He is always to know what pictures are being made at his studio, and when hears of any he likes, he makes a bid for it. He is very pleased that he is no longer told they wanted Errol Flynn for a certain picture, but that they are going to give it to him.
