An Errol Flynn Dilemma?

28 Oct

I am submitting a couple of pictures of Flynn I have had in my collection for many years.

They both appear to be from the same event since they are noted with the WB numbering I system (GEN PUB8546).  But, there seems to be some confusion about my listing  for time and place. So I am asking for help in confirming just where and when they were taken.

 

 

I have this shot of Errol with Faye Emerson, in front of the My Gallery at 850l0 Wishire, during May 25th to 27th, 1945 at the Eleanor Powell pre-auction, open-exhibition. A similar photo also appeared in the August, ’45 issue of Movie Stars Parade magazine. By the way that is Michael Curtiz back to camera looking at another artwork.

This shot is of Flynn and Curtiz inside the building, chatting. There are also a few more of these two together, all WB numbered. My confusion is that I also have some old hand notes that this is an exhibition at the Decker and Flynn Gallery sometime in May or June, ’45, but I have no back-up. Since I can not locate any old photos of the front of either of the two galleries, I am not sure which description is correct … or if they are both wrong.  So … I appreciate any feedback that will straighten out my dilemma.

Mailbag, from Jack Marino!

12 Sep

Jack Marino sent out this note and asks to include it on the EFB, too. He says:

I am looking for a pristine photo like the Bert Six quality if possible of a shot of the Sirocco when Errol Flynn owned her. I want to blow it up and put it in a frame of 29 x 22. I’d like to get the Sirocco in the middle of the frame.  If there is a color, B&W or sepia image that all works for me. 

If Bill or Tom that have published books that may have a photo like this or similar please contact me.  

Dave DeWitt if anyone on the ERROL FLYNN BLOG collects Flynn photos could you asked if they may have what I am looking for?  

Hope all is well with you all, and thanks for the help, gang!

Best 

Jack 

It would have to be a photo large enough to blow up to the size he is seeking, and still be clear and not fuzzy. Thanks for any ideas, or help, mates …
