Dodging Dodge City? — OR Dreading Bette D?

22 Mar

March 20, 1939

Louella O. Parsons
Los Angeles Examiner

If Errol Flynn fails to show up for his preview, Bob Taplinger is going to lose some money. Errol’s trusting P.A. is betting that he will be there, but knowing the Flynn temperament I wouldn’t want to do any wagering myself. Errol doesn’t have to be back in Hollywood until May, when he plays Essex to Bette Davis’ Elizabeth.
Another change in the schedule has put The Knight and the LadyThe Miracle. You’ll see Claude Rains as Bacon, poet laureate of the Elizabethan era. It will all be in Technicolor. Bette’s first. This Queen Elizabeth is based on Robert Sherwood’s “Elizabeth the Queen”.

Rory Flynn sends us this interesting news about her son (Sean Rio Flynn)’s business!

Hello, friends of Errol! I know for a fact that Errol Flynn, my father, would have wanted everyone to know what his Grandson is up to!
My Son Rio (actor Sean Flynn) is running a new and exciting company in Atlanta GA: “Donatello Arm”!

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!

Help Rory Flynn Bring Sean Flynn & the Missing Back Home!

10 Nov

Rory Flynn, Mike Luehring and Dave MacMillan have created a GoFundeMe to help bring Sean Flynn, Dana Stone and the other missing journalists home … many efforts over the decades have been undertaken and now it is felt that the answers are close to hand. It will take a financial commitment beyond what has already been made, as well as the emotional cost already spent to bring Sean, and other still missing home again. This is our chance to help make it happen, those who have respect and love for all of them. It is a chance to share in the effort, and the accomplishment of what has been a very long struggle …

You can donate any amount you like, however small, it will become a river ..

Please visit the funding page to see a special video Rory has made to help us understand what is at stake …

Mail Bag! Zaca Model made from Main Boom of Flynn’s Original Zaca!

21 Oct

Robert writes again with photos of the model of the Zaca he constructed from wood of the Main Mast of the original Zaca. Of the model he says:

“All the masts and the support are in Oregon pine, but this wood is that of the principal boom of ZACA that I bought to the shipyard keeping the complete masts and cut it in planks of 3 centimeters thick, under report of Usher. This model is unique in the world because it is manufactured with the original hull and masts plans and the wood originating from the ZACA is an integral part of the ship. A historical model in various aspects.

I still have some boards of this wood of which I made 80 ZACA half-hull. It measures Length : 151 Cm – Width : 22 Cm – Height : 125 Cm.

The bollard is from the Zaca, and is for sale. You can inquire through this blog, by contacting Robert via our email address: zacapublishing at gmail dot com …

Robert, thanks so much for sharing your photos with us!
