    Thanks so very much, David. And thanks also for all you did to so significantly help enhance the video – with both your inspiration, and the wondrous imagery of Errol “Sailing the Seven Seas”!!

    Speaking of Errol’s Sailing of the Seven Seas, I have the great fortune of living near Ja Jolla Cliffs, which were so majestically filmed for “Cruise of the Zaca”. I included a brief clip of that tremendous scene (intercut with some Port Antonio & Riviera film clips) in the “In Like Flynn” tribute video. Tomorrow, my son & I head over to Scripp’s Institution of Oceanography for some research into the Zaca expedition, and then for a swim at the magnificent beach below the cliffs!

    And here’s how Scripp’s looked like when Errol first saw it & berthed there, in the late Thirties. Behind Scripp’s is where, leaving from Mulholland Farm, Errol landed in Paul Mantz’s helicopter in that sensational early scene from his classic “Cruise of the Zaca”, and at the very beginning of this French video – which also includes the magnificent cliffs of La Jolla pictured aboved:

      Thank you so very much, Inga! It’s my great honor, privilege & pleasure!!!

      I’m working on two new versions of the video – one with a new narrator and narration, a second without any narration at all. Had to put out the 75th Anniversary of Robin Hood version with out the originally intended narrator, a very talented actor, musician & director who’s on the road promoting his last fim and raising funds for his next. To honor Errol, I wanted a John Barrymore-type narration!
