Mystery Meal Quiz

14 Jul

What significant event in Errol’s life happened here?

“Resting on the southern bank of the River Seine across from the famous Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris towers the mythical La Tour d’Argent. A culinary and magical experience is presented to you as soon as you step off the gilded elevator escorted by a white gloved attendant. The restaurant sits high above the real world and as soon you enter the main dining room you know you are in for something special. Everything from the yellow glow of the candle lit room to its breath taking views and luxurious decor create a perfect ambiance to fully enjoy the French gastronomy you are about to undertake. The oldest restaurant in Paris, the Tour d’Argent claims to have opened its doors in 1582 where it was created as an elegant inn to cater to the high society and aristocrats of its day. It was built using stones from the region of Champagne France, which gave the edifice a silvery likeness thus giving the tower its name La Tour d’Argent (the Silver Tower).”

“Since its opening, the restaurant has had countless famous and infamous diners throughout its 400 year history. Louis XIV, Philippe d ‘Orléans and the Duke of Richelieu were amongst the early famous faces to have their favourite tables by the windows.”

“The Pixar animated film, Ratatouille, was loosely based on La Tour d’Argent.”

Errol Flynn was friends with its legendary owner, Claude Terrail, who was rumored to be romantically involved with both Marilyn Monroe and Ava Gardner.

You asked for it…

13 May

First of all, Happy Mother’s Day… and this person of interest was one!

She was a romantic “distraction” in a Flynn film.

Went by her REAL name throughout her professional career.

Born in the southern USA.

Minor double threat… in screen, stage, and more so (in her time) on tv.

Married 3 times; 2 were publicly known and they BOTH outlived her.

Shared, with Flynn, a LOVE for a location outside the US (mainland).

— Karl

 

Who is She? Who is She?

11 May

She was the leading lady in one of Errol’s major films.

She sailed on the Pacific to California in early ’35

She settled in LA, performing from an early age.

Her parents were singing and dancing vaudevillians.

Her mother was originally from Australia.

Following her film with Flynn, she played an exotically attractive woman in a role inspired by a legendary number one song – a song regarded by many as one of the all-time greats of its genre.

A Spring Training Quiz

03 Mar

It’s 3/3, Baseball Spring. So here’s a FlynnQuiz involving the most famous No. 3 of all, Babe Ruth.

One was Ruthian, the other Errolympian.

Both were hugely popular and beloved stars, and still are.

One’s career ended in 1935, the other’s exploded in 1935.

It’s astonishing to me that there’s no record of Errol Flynn and Babe Ruth ever meeting. For example, it’s hard for me to believe that Babe never attended a party up at Mulholland. They did, however, both know a famous director. In fact, this director had a significant role in the film careers of both Errol and Babe. Indeed, it may be the case that Babe’s having worked with this famous director impeded Babe from meeting Errol. Whatever the reason here’s the quiz question:

What famous director did both Errol Flynn and Babe Ruth work with?

Pitch No. 1: It involved a very big and famous premier in New York.

Pitch No. 2: It did not involve the wonderful Harold Lloyd film depicted below.

Pitch No. 3: Nor did it involve the Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright masterpiece depicted below.

Speedy: One of Harold Lloyd’s greatest, featuring Babe Ruth.

Pride of the Yankees: a heart-wrenching Super-Duper Gary Cooper movie, featuring the stunningly gorgeous and talented Teresa Wright. Look for Ruth in the beginning of this music video tribute.
