Errol Flynn Redux

29 Mar

Hi one and all.

We showed you an article from Leonard Maltin recently and then we contacted him to thank him for it. He asked us for a few more pictures which, with Rory's blessing, we forwarded and he used some of them in his next article which can be found at…

Odd, innit?

25 Mar

Hallo, everybody! Tina has pointed out that some articles that on my own computer are missing from the Main Page of the blog appear on her computer!

Very odd, innit? I have never encountered this problem before on the blog and so will put in a support ticket to find out why this is happening. If you look at the Recent Articles list you see the articles in their correct order. But on my computer several articles don't appear on screen, and I am wondering how many our authors out there are also wondering what happened to your articles?

I will let everyone know what happens when I get a response from the blogware providers. May take a few days!

Re: Errol Country II

24 Mar

    Dear Errol Fans,

           I recently posted an article called: 'Errol Country II' and for some reason it will not show up on the main page. Even David and all his magic can't fix the bug. Instead of re-doing the entire piece, I will leave it as is. If you want to view it, simply press 'new articles' on the left of the Home Page. 'Tis a mystery. Maybe the ghosts of Folly mansion are unhappy.

                                          Thanks,  John

Zaca on Vimeo- thanks, Chris Driscoll!

23 Mar

Our Chum, Chris Driscoll sends us this link to a Vimeo video he says ought to be on the blog! Chris writes…

Hello David, I really think this link needs to be on the blog….it really explains how Errol acquired the vessel and what he must have spent on her to refurbish this vessel. I especially love how his crew speak so fondly of him…how his chef cried when Errol would go away and that Errol would put his arm around him to comfort him..and say “You might see me again”…quite moving !

SCT Ep103 – Luther Greene's In the Wake of the Zaca…

Wonderful History of Zaca

About this video:
“In the Wake of the ZACA captures a lost age of adventure, romance,and Hollywood glamor told through the history of a 75 year-old, 118 foot gaff rigged topsail schooner. Launched in San Francisco on the eve of the great depression, Zaca explored stone-age civilizations in the South Pacific, patrolled the California coast as an armed ship of war during World War II, and served as party boat for sailor and swashbuckling actor Errol Flynn. Left to languish as a striped hulk on a mud flat in the south of France, Zaca rose like the phoenix to sail again.

Visit TheSailingChannel.TV… to purchase the unabridged version of the film as well as a plethora of other high quality sailing videos.”
