      Just wondering if this was another of Errol’s 20 yachts? The Flamingo? Or is this just a reference to the Las Vegas Night Club?

      Thank you very much, A.R.

      Errol & Sean are both so happy in this wonderful photo, Lollie. Thanks.

      Looks like a ride on Lake Mead, Inga – in a speedboat owned by The Flamingo Hotel.

    So strange. I was with a friend yesterday who was telling me about a screening of “Adventures of Robin Hood” in Hollywood today.(It’s been painstakingly restored! ;) He asked me if Errol ever had a son and I told him the story of Sean Flynn and how his friend (and fellow photographer) was captured in Vietnam. Sean escaped on his motorcycle and raced down the road to warn other people away. And then he heroically WENT BACK to try and save his friend, never to be seen again. (though his mother never gave up hope he’d be found alive.) A real-life hero. His father would have been very proud.
