From the Errol Flynn Mailbag!

05 Dec

I got a nice email from my good friend Dennis Mullen over at In Search of Errol… – and he received the following message from Robert Flemming:

I have been checking the internet for information on Errol Flynn. My fathers half brother Jim Fleming was Errol Flynn’s double and friend. Jim gave my father a Robin Hood book in 1937 that was signed by the entire cast, producers, stage etc as a gift. It is a 1936 Edith Neal addition with autographs of Olivia, Basil, Errol etc etc.

We have been trying to see a value on this book.

We also have a book written by Errol-Showdown – that he gave to my grandmother Stella Fleming. It is signed, Hello Stella! Thanks for asking – you don’t have to read it. Errol Flynn.

Original Sheridan House copyright 1946 by Errol Flynn.

Anyone who can shed more light on the value of these books please comment!

    An identical volume of “Robin Hood” (Rand McNally & Co., 1936), fully signed by cast and crew of the film, is being auctioned next week by Profiles in History. The estimated price range is $8,000-$12,000.

      Estimated… but do you think someone is really going to pay that much?

          If I win the lottery, you bet! oh, Hawaii doesn’t participate in the Mega Millions Lottery! … this will make it a bit harder to win!
