Colonel Lankershim and Errol's Mulholland Property…

29 Jun

Since a few of us have been scouting the property up at Mulholland where Errol had a hilltop home – it seems a good idea to mention the article in the June 2, 1939 LA Mirror that Rick Stinehour found on their history blog…

Rick says,

It is a piece from a column — “Nuestro Pueblo” — that the paper ran on a regular basis. This particular article deals with the monument devoted to Colonel Lankershim, which abutted the Mulholland Farm property. Quite an interesting account of the Boy Scouts annoying EF's pets!

Also, deserving mention, if you go to the LA Time's website and access this article directly, some kind soul has taken photos of the contemporary sight and provided information as to how visitors may take a hike into see the monument in person. What a trip that would be! -RS

I was unable to find the link to the photos for us – but one of you computer whiz types out there might have better luck! Meantime Rick provides a photo of the article for us and I have made it into a pdf… Enjoy!

A ray of light shines bright on Errol's Star in Hollywood…

28 Jun

Three days before Errol Flynn's 100th Birthday a ray of light shines brightly on his star in Hollywood… today, his star sits just a few feet from a popular eatery on Hollywood Blvd – and not too far from Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

The first star in the Hollywood Walk of fame was placed for Joanne Woodward on February 9, 1960 and to date there are over 2,000 stars representing stars who have made significant contributions to film, radio, television and the recording industry. Stars near Flynn's include Robert Vaughn and Leonard Nimoy just across the street…

While Steve and Genene Randall kicked off Errol's Centenary Celebrations with guests Rory Flynn and her son Sean in Hobart, Tasmania – Jack & Louise Marino's 100th Birthday Bash for Errol Flynn at a gathering of The Mulholland Drive Boys, with guests Ron Fisher (husband of Beverly Aadland), and his daughter, Aadlanda, actor William Smith (Forgotten Heroes, directed by Jack), and his wife Joanne and Paul Picerni (who played Detective Steven Ranier in Mara Maru with Flynn), was held in Burbank, California.

Jack says he owes his lovely wife Louise all the credit for opening her home to so many people and working so hard to make the evening a huge success. She was the perfect hostess… and everyone enjoyed her warm smile and many thoughtful kindnesses during the event…

Special Guest was Trudy McVicker who knew Earl Conrad and Tony Thomas well, among other Flynn writers and is a true “Keeper of the Flame”.

On hand was Flynn biographer Tom McNulty (Errol Flynn, The Life & Career), and his wife Jan, Musician and Artist Robert Florczak and his wife, Annette, Actor and Photographer Dick Wieand, Actor, Playwright and Author Louis Kraft, Karl Holmberg of the Yahoo chat group The Zaca, Steve Latshaw, Polly Kranjcich, Kent Hagen, Donny Sarian, Greg Maradei, Karen Figilis owner of Flynn's Appian Way home and many others… including one very lucky fellow named Carl Zetterstrom who journeyed all the way from Sweden  to be at Errol's gravesite on June 20, and ended up being invited to a very special party!

Details of the party in Burbank and Special Events in Hobart will be forthcoming along with a gallery of photos! Stay tuned…

Something a bit different this time in our Traditional Welcoming for  new Authors! Karen Lynne and Graham Howes have produced a play about Errol Flynn (Karen wrote it, Graham directed) which was presented at the Aldwych Theatre in London’s West End Theatre district.

They say they have been working on the play and substantially reworked it since its debut and are looking for investors to bring the play to a new full staging. Copies of the play are available for serious investors…

About Comments – a Guideline

24 Jun

Allow comments to be made to your posts or nobody will be able to start a comment string about what you wrote. Use the Enable button to allow comments.

You may include images and  links that don’t violate the Terms and Conditions of the blog host,…. Affiliate links in comments will be deleted.

Additionally, any contributor may be banned or blocked after posting anything that in the mind of the Administrator is pornographic, or contains Spam. Spam blocking software is active on this blog but may not catch all material that is posted as or that activates the Spam blocker. It’s also  possible (though rarely) that the title or the wording of your post may trigger the Spam blocker. We’ll deal with it, if it happens. :-)

Use common sense when posting. We are all adults, hopefully, but keep it to a dull roar folks! There is no age limit restricting who is reading this blog, so just be aware that someone of impressionable age may be reading what you post. Also, it is fine to discuss Flynn’s religion or politics but not your own. Such posts or comments will be deleted by the Administrator if they are deemed to cross this line of discussion – thanks for understanding. While each of us may have dearly held feelings about our own religion or politics we are not here to discuss them.



In Addition, no bickering, no personal attacks.

Respect for differing opinions and points of view, etc., are all fundamental to this blog.

We must treat each other in a civil way, and any arguments are to to be first taken up with the blog Admin. There is a Reporting link under each comment. Use that before posting a hastily worded or angry reply.

In the past, I have respected people’s good sense, and asked them to remove or edit their comments to better reflect the blog’s policy of treating each other with respect. Now, I will delete these kinds of comments without discussion. If there are continued comments of the same nature, I will moderate future comments and posts until I’m satisfied they won’t continue. People can argue points, but they can’t shame each other on these pages or start personal arguments in public. If someone has had their comment deleted it is due to a Comment Guideline issue. Nobody wants to read arguments, and heated exchanges. Readers tell me this, and some leave the blog because of it. I have a lot patience under normal conditions but less time to work through these kinds of issues. I will never edit Posts that Authors wrote unless asked to by the author privately for presentation on the blog. I will center photos, or alter incongruent fonts, etc. … I may edit comments to reflect the blog’s policies. If a comment or post is deleted, all the comments, replies, and images will go away, too. Basically, treat others the way you’d like to be treated.

If possible, please host images in the Media Library for use on the blog. But don’t use large file sizes or we will run out of our monthly bandwidth.
