    Taken by Robert Bardey on Sunday October 4, 1959 in Hollywood, most likely at the Landmark Hotel pool.

    Landmark Hotel Pool? Is there such hotel by this name?
    Being October 4th, 1959 and the last view days of his life – I thought this being his last address: 7047 Franklin Ave. Hollywood – Highland Garden Hotel – 1959
    Love to see any corrections.

    As backwards as the photos from a much earlier discussion of this problem.

    No corrections to be seen. The Landmark was its original name in Flynn's day, and is now called the Highland Gardens.

    what was Errol suppose to be doing in this picture? It looks like he was doing something with his arms and the expression on his face doesn't look like him to have that look before.

    He was telling the story of John Barrymore's dead body carried up to Flynn's house.

    Ah – yes, I remember and you turned it around and I asked you to give us instructions how to do that, but you never did. Could you be so kind and give us clear instructions now. You know we are always grateful for all your help!

    It depends on what applications or programs you have on your computer. I use the non-Soviet version of computers, the Mac, so I can tell you that in Mac you can simply “Flip Horizontal” in the Tools menu of the “Preview” application. I would guess other computers have similar image viewing applications with that option, or that other programs you use for images would have a “flip” or “mirror” option.

    Thanks Robert – boy that was easy – it worked “Flip Horizontal” on the PC and here it is!

    You're very welcome, and will have the best of luck if you put the PC on a bonfire!

    Yes most certainly – thanks to you I am richer of one very interesting knowledge about picture flipping. I wonder how many backward pictures we all process? Thanks to you we now can flip flop around pictures all day!

    Let's try to guess, what could Errol due to his expression actually be saying?
    I would say he was spinning a tail when going to New Guinea on the Sirocco.
    Errol: We were entering the mouth of the Richmond River and all hell broke lose seeing the three massive lines of crashing breakers, which lay between us and safety and which we had to cross at all costs. It was a battle with high wind, enormous waves and the Sea!
    Suddenly the Sirocco was lifted out of the water at its bow and came screaming crushing down we thought the end is upon us. In this horrendous battle of the elements the steering gear broke rendering the helm useless. My brain was feverish thinking how can I save vessel and crew? I moved toward the tiller at the stern, I was aghast it was broken. It seemed as hell was about to claim us and in a last effort to safe us I reached for the short stump remaining from the tiller arm and pulled, and pulled, and pulled us to safety!
    So what is your story about this picture?

    I meant to use imagination and your Lili story is very fitting! Would be nice if more of our members would join in and have some fun – we'll see!

    According to the article he's pantomiming the difficulty in which his friends had with carting the body.
    But if you mean to use imagination, I'd say he's demonstrating how he handled Lili in one of their many battles.

    I just stayed at the Landmark Motor Hotel (now called the Highland Gardens Hotel) The place is a time capsule, nothing really has changed in 50 years. Room 105 is where Janis Joplin accidentally overdosed on heroin in October of 1970.
