    Great picture. One can see that there was great passion between them. It’s unfortunate how Flynn’s progeny ended up though. And I am going to say it one more time (in anticipation of what some others might say); the only one responsible for Flynn’s ruin was Flynn. Or is he another victim of fame?–A. R.

      Both, I would say… I don’t know if this saying is well known in English, but we say that Every Man is the Artisan of his Own Fortune.

        Very Interesting! No i don’t believe that saying is that well known in English. It is definitely food for thought.–A. R.

        Hi Inga;
        I never heard your version of this saying, the one I always heard was “jeder ist seines Glückes Schmied “, but it has the same meaning.
        Maybe it come from a poem by A. Mayer, I don’t know, but the poem is this one, maybe you could translate it as it is quite fitting in a way to Errol.

        Der Unterschied
        Die Glocke schlägt zum letzten Mal,
        man hört ein leises Weinen.
        Gesichter, sie sind blass und fahl,
        ein letzter Gruß der Seinen.

        Warum hat er den Schritt gemacht,
        er war doch glücklich wie es schien.
        Doch der, der heute mit dir lacht,
        hat vielleicht selbst, sich nie verziehn.

        Der Mensch ist seines Glückes Schmid,
        heißt es in schlauen Zeilen,
        doch macht es einen Unterschied,
        wenn Wunden niemals heilen.

        Ein jeder muss sein Päckchen tragen,
        einer leicht, der Andere schwer.
        Ein Dritter ist gar am Verzagen,
        ist ausgebrannt, er kann nicht mehr.

        Darum denk nach und richte nicht,
        über eines Menschen Leben,
        denn seine Seele siehst du nicht,
        oft liegst du voll daneben.

        Take care Inga!

          Dear Tina, I was looking for a translation of “Jeder ist seines Glückes Schmied” and found several versions, so I chose one which seemed closest. I will try to translate your wonderful poem once I have a little time, ok? Take care, dearest!!

      Hi A.R.;
      Apparently Errol suffered very badly from depression, one could say despair was his middle name and therefore I would say that the drugs helped him to function. In addition, Errol had in inferiority complex afflicted onto him in childhood. Then from nothing to Super Star a mega transformation to deal with for an emotional scared person. Mix this all together and one would get a cocktail of suicidal self-destruction.
      Without professional help, which was in those days still in kinder-shoes what can one expect. But he was always was most loveable and to this day. Just my little opinion! Take care!

    Very rare indeed! I never saw this one! They were so young
    and beautiful! As for A.R.’s comment I agree and Errol knew

    Hi Inga;
    Today I have taken out for myself and I thought I am going to take a look at my favorite blog and I see to my astonishment a reportage from Toronto – wow – how nice!

    I maybe should have told everyone about it then. It was published in the Toronto Star – Entertainment page – on April 23, 2011 by Martin Knelman – titled – “Shooter of the stars gets fitting tribute”. It is a huge page 23 x12 inches and it also shows Marlene Dietrich, Groucho Marx, Cary Grant, Shirley Temple, Henry Fonda and Bela Lugosi with grandson.
    Errol’s picture is huge 10×61/2 inches as all the other pictures are small and on the bottom of the page. Errol has the prime picture with his and Lili”s name underneath and Lili is spelled with a “y”. Trust the Torontonians! I can’t scan the page because it is so huge otherwise I would. Wish you all the best Super Sleuth!

      Dear Tina, I included the link to the article, so you need not take the work to scan the article, those who are interested can also read it online. So good to read you here, dear Tina!

    I believe that was one in a series of photos that was taken by Dr. Erben when he visited Errol and Lili.

      There are similar ones by Erben, but this particular one is not from him. There must have been other journalists stading nearby (cf. article in link attached).
