Tennis and Water Skiing in the Summer of ’38


“Water Skiing New Coronado Water Sport”

I think that I shall never see
A thing as lonely as a ski
A ski that stands against the wall
Waiting until some snow shall fall.

The author of the above evidently hadn’t heard of the latest craze,
water skiing. Now that we have been naughtily alluring in grass skirts
during Hawaiian week and demurely picturesque in crinoline in the manner
of the Gay Nineties we must need be athletic and go cavorting about on
the top of the waves with water skis.

Whether you pronounce it ski or “ski” you’ll pronounce it thrilling
according to Otto Lang, the instructor in the precarious sport which has
so suddenly become the rage. Mr. Lang is famed as an instructor who has
coached the University of Washington ski team, and was associated with
Hannes Schneider, a world authority on skiing. He appeared In “Thin Ice’’
with Sonja Henie. Mr. Lang contends that water skiing keeps one in condition
for snow skiing and visa versa. The skills are similar altho attached to the
feet in a different manner.”

Errol Flynn who was recently here as a contestant in the tennis tournament,
is one of the chief enthusiasts of the sport and it is predicted that other
moving picture actors will follow his lead. Mr. Lang is at present instructing
some of the younger set among whom are Miss Dorothy Royce, Miss Sinclair Gannon
Miss Quil Garrettson and Walter Fitch. They are expected to fly thru the water
with the greatest of ease any day now.

Whatever Happened to Mrs. Evans?

19 Jun

Did her husband in Paris kill her when he found out where she was?

A Quiz on the Neverending Adventures of Errol Flynn

More in the papers from and about Barbara”

“Did Mrs. Evans have any comments on world affairs? Yes. George will just kill me when he finds out where I’ve been.

Sounds like George might be kind of a poor sport. For Castro the warfare is over. For Errol it may just be the beginning.”

Meet the Mayor

04 Jun

Mayor David Wenham – from 300, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

“Last month the hard working Wenham played Christian Travers, the fictional mayor of Townsville in director Russell Mulcahy’s Errol Flynn biopic In Like Flynn, shot on the Gold Coast.

Produced by James M. Vernon and Corey Large, the film follows the early life of the Tasmanian-born Flynn (Red Dog: True Blue’s Thomas Cocquerel) as he and his friends set sail from Sydney to New Guinea in search of gold. The mayor is the local bookmaker and brothel owner. Other cast members include Callan Mulvey, Isabel Lucas, Corey Large, William Moseley and Clive Standen.

Wenham relished the chance to work with Mulcahy, describing him as a great character and an absolute hoot.”
