    They were ships. There was also another ship picture, bigger and of a sailing vessel (not Sirocco) like a clipper ship. It was above the bar when I first got there and then it was taken down and I saw it leaning against the wall next to his bed as if he intended to either give it away or have it reframed, etc. Knowing what I now know I would have asked him what it was there for — but frankly, I wasn't that interested at the time.
    Interestingly, I tried to remember yesterday what color the carpet was in his bedroom. Came up with three colors and honestly knew I was just guessing. I was irritated until I was on the phone with a gal I know, whose house I have often visited, and realized I couldn't recall what color her carpet was either — and that wasn't almost sixty years ago. That made me feel better. Steve

    Great photo, David. I was thinking about how there were a number of photos of Flynn taken, quite posed, in his home and on the Zaca…which was true for a number of stars back in the 40's and 50's. Probably for magazine articles. I wonder how much of this was encouraged by the studios. And why it's not so common to see photos of modern stars relaxing in their homes.

    Actually there were quite a large number of photos of stars in their homes. I have several books of just that theme.

    I'm pretty sure this was one of the unused photos shot by Bert Six for the article “The Master of Muholland.” It's a great article, in case you haven't seen it.

    The prints were by noted marine artist, Charles J.A. Wilson.
