Tina look what I found . . .

16 Feb

Oddly, the glamour of 1930s Hollywood became a part of the ASTC experience. Andy Devine, who had attended the college in 1926, often returned to campus with “intriguing” young starlets. He took time from his movie career and Jack Benny's NBC radio program to select the La Cuesta yearbook queens from photographs. One lucky queen, Julie Osborne (1938), received a personally guided tour of Universal Studios from Andy. In 1939, Erroll Flynn [sic] and Randolph Scott, who were filming Virginia City near Flagstaff, selected Alice Moore as queen

Errol just seems to be found in unexpected places.  I am reading Airframe by Michael Crichton and on page 77 . . . “She walked down the corridor, past the photographs of famous Norton aircraft from the past, with a celebrity posed in front: . . . Errol flynn, with smiling girls in the tropics, in front of an N-5 . . . .” !!!!

    Hi Kathleen;
    You are awesome! My dear keep on searching – you are great!
    I do have this picture too and wanted to use it one day for something special, but I never got to it.
    You are right he was everywhere, he was in heaven, he was in hell, just like the Scarlet Pimpernel. My poem for Errol!
    All the best to you!

    You're funny! I love your poem. Where did you find your picture? I'm still trying to find where I found the airplane picture and the caption about them flying off to get married. You can't believe everything you read! (But I believe Robert!!!)

    Hi Kathleen;
    Sorry, I have no idea where I found the picture of him crowning the girl, it was a long time ago. In addition, I am not sure if that is the picture he flew off to get married, because I read some place that a friend flew them in his private plane and on this picture is an airline stated. But then this just might be a ramp borrowed from the airport to step on the plane. Guessing and guessing, but it is fun – right!
    Yes, my dear Kathleen when it comes to Robert I am 100% with you.
    You may want to know I made a video of “The Private Lives of Elisabeth and Essex” for a video contest “Best movie of 1939”, I am doing quite well with it so far – maybe I win one never knows. If you want to see it go to BARIEBEL on You Tube you can see all eight videos I made about our Hero! If you see them let me know what you think.
    That's all for now – the best to you!

    Yes, beautiful and unique, [the mask] where did you find it? What is the history? I will take time to look at the E&E video.

    Hi Kathleen;
    I found the mask on Google – type Errol Flynn in search line and go to “pictures” top left corner and a lot of pictures come up and it was amongst them. Good Luck!
