Louis Kraft & They Died with their Boots On, Olivia, and Custer…

31 Dec

On October 18, 2008
Louis Kraft was the guest speaker at
The Burbank Historical Society
1015 W. Olive Ave., Burbank, CA

The historical society, which is located near the Warner Bros. film studio, houses two costumes from the Errol Flynn/Olivia de Havilland film “They Died With Their Boots On” (Warner Bros., 1941). The costumes, Flynn’s West Point uniform and de Havilland’s black mourning dress, are on display in the society’s Gordon R. Howard Museum.

Kraft spoke about “Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, “They Died With Their Boots On,” and a fellow named Custer.”

Cat's Meow…

Errol with Bes Mudi, his Siamese cat, and Zaca's mascot. The black and tan Siamese was given to Errol by makeup man, Ward Hamilton. No alley cat, Bes Mudi had a famous lineage. His mother was Mei Ling and her's was Ah Fui (no kidding!). Mei Ling's sire was Brant's Prince Chan who came out of the Double International champion, Si Mingo… if that makes sense to any of you…
