    That's rare indeed. Haven't seen it.
    Considering Errol would be dead shortly after this was taken, he's not looking particularly ill.

    The reporter's name is John Arnett.
    Here's a link to a 2007 article about Mr. Arnett; there's a different photo of him with Flynn at the Vancouver airport:…
    Whew! Quite the link.
    The photo above (reproduced in Backstage Vancouver) is available from the Vancouver Public Library:…
    That one's even worse! If it doesn't work, go to the Vancouver Public Library website and search the Historical Photo collection.
    (Backstage Vancouver also includes a 1978 photo of Ginger Rogers, taken by me. I asked her if she'd met Errol Flynn but she said she'd only met him casually, at parties.)
    Cheers, Fellow Flynn Fans!
