Cat's Meow…

29 Dec

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…

    Thanks, for the great story and pic, David. One slight problem, if I may be an old curmudgeon: it's displayed backwards! I've flopped it correctly if you'd like to have it.
    Regards,
    Robert

    If Bob Singleton (cook) were still about, he would have a story about that special cat.
    I am that person of mention by Linc Hurst Berry not Beery and my time aboard Zaca
    was 1946 . Those who have Tom McNulty book have a fair outline of my connection
    with EF
    By the by anyone have an idea when Hurst book will be available Regards Wallace

    Hi Wallace,
    Great to have you with us at the Errol Flynn Blog.
    Things don't look good for the Hurst book. I assume you know Professor Hurst died a couple of years ago, with the book unfinished.
    best wishes,
    Brian.

    I thought maybe our members would like to see the difference of how the media sometimes distorts a picture by placing it backwards or the other way around!
