      I, too, hope they put it out soon, Lollie! The way it’s said, the film appears it may have some connection to Errol’s visiting Northern Ireland – perhaps to see his Mom & Dad? He was definitely up there when his Dad was at Queens University Belfast. The parents are said to have had one home right nearby the university on Stranmillis Road, and one “vacation home” out by Kilclief Castle, on Strangford Lough.…

          Yes, Lollie, terrific! I looked up the details of this provided in the link just made known to us by Michael Cummins in David’s Mailbag post today. Appears there are 24 35-mm prints of Errol Flynn Theater, seven of which were previously regarded lost. So this is definitely big, “Out of the Blue”, Flynnian news!


          Newly Found Shows include:

          3/11/56 FAREWELL PERFORMANCE

          6/12/56 THE KINSMAN

          4/15/57 DECLASSE

          4/20/57 FIRST COME, FIRST LOVED

          6/4/57 THE CELLINI CUP

          9/3/57 THE RUSTLE OF SILK (with Ron Howard – Trevor’s son!)

          11/5/57 OUT OF THE BLUE

            Here’s an excellent reference to all the EFT shows, Lollie! Looks like we’re all in for a treat, getting to see Errol host & possible narrate seven shows previously believed lost. Plus, ALL of these shows – even the ones previously available – apparently have not been in as good as quality as these newly discovered films! (Shows previously available are evidently all of inferior quality, not in 35-mm, as these new films are said to be. Morevover, some or all of the ones already available may be “edited”.
