Dr. Who?

28 Mar

Given the Green Light by shangheinz on “Errorol”:

WHAT PROMINENT ENGLISH DOCTOR HELPED ERROL TREAT HIS SINUSES?

He was a “Harley Street” practitioner.

Early in his career, he pioneered and advocated the use of “truth drugs”.

He famously advocated one such drug in a French murder case.

Mid-career he was involved as an expert witness in a Hong Kong medical malpractice case.

He was later involved in a notorious British abortion/killing-of the-mother case.

He communicated from England to Errol elsewhere in Europe.

He had an indirect connection to the Profumo Affair.

Late in his career, he was quoted in Sports Illustrated concerning the abilities of women drivers.

He looked like this, but usually wore glasses during the years he treated Errol:

Flynn, Kennedy & Miss Congo???

15 Dec

Was there a connection???

As Flynn in Florida research continues I quite unexpectedly came across this reported connection between Errol and one of Joe Kennedy’s early films. … leading one to wonder what happened to the rest of Errol’s reportedly “huge collection of silent films”? Any or all also at MoMA?

25 Nov

Rory Flynn tells me she just signed a contract to allow a new board game to be produced based on movie adventures of her father Errol Flynn! She sends us a copy of the proposal ad … No idea when the game would be available as yet but how exciting is this?

Thanks, Rory!
