“I got a kick out of Nora Flynn’s Christmas gift to Errol – slippers and a robe. Yes, sir, it looks as if the screen’s Don Juan is getting to be quite a family man.”

30 Aug

All Flynn followers are familiar with the brief appearance of Errol and Lily in Pirate Party on Catalina Island, but there was always a little confusion about when this quiet little short subject appeared. To help quell any more questions, here is a clip from the Los Angeles Times newspaper of Feb. 12, 1936, page 11.

 

It premiered with the Charlie Chaplin film Modern Times.
