Name All Surviving Errol Flynn leading ladies!

28 Aug

In recent years Errol Flynn fans saw the passing of many of his leading ladies from his films.  These include Cornell Borchers, Ruth Roman, Eleanor Parker, Beverly Aadland, and Patrice Wymore.  

Can you EF scholars name all the surviving Errol Flynn leading ladies from his films still alive today?    Here are two hints, one name immediately comes to mind.   Two of the leading ladies were child actresses at the time they worked with Flynn.  

  Thanks Ralph

      Robert F., Ralph, has permanently left the blog, due to certain issues with certain people. As for your wonderful quiz, actually we could just have taken your “old” list from a few years ago and see which of the ladies named there are still with us… It’s good to be reminded ot them!

    For Starters, Ralph, I would like to add the following:

    First & foremost: The Great Livvie DeHavilland

    Then we have:

    Gina Lollabrigida

    Yvonne Furneaux

    Micheline Presle

    Doris Day, sort of

    Gillian Lynne could also be mentioned, though not technically the leading lady in TMoB.

      Between you and Maria, you are getting warm but the list is still not complete!

      P.S. Ralph. Between you & me, I purposely left out one of the very biggest, and one of my personal favorites. Like Livvie, she, too, is over in Europe and still going strong, Maybe someone else will name her.

    I think the others are Rossana Rory (The Big Boodle), Dorothy Malone (Too Much Too Soon) & Juliette Gréco (The Roots of Heaven)

      Welcome back Robert! You got nearly all of them. The remaining are:

      Waltraut Haas (Story Of William Tell)

      Sherry Jackson (Hello God)

      Patti Brady (Never Say Goodbye, she was little Flip).

      All together there are twelve surviving leading ladies of Errol Flynn. Let us thank them all for enhancing Flynn’s films. By the way Waltraut Haas looked absoulutely beautiful in PatheColor. Ralph

    And, after Olivia, Ralph, my favorite (and maybe Errol, too?) —- ZACA!

    Thanks! Great quiz, Ralph!!

    Ok! Now that the quiz is done, I’ll tell what I meant by not wanting to spoil Ralph’s fun! This question has been asked on this blog before, and by Ralph!…

      Bullseye David! The sad part is that the number of Flynn’s leading ladies is dwindling very fast. Thanks. Ralph

        Ralph, it was a great quiz question, and yes, sadly, the list has grown smaller, hasn’t it?

      Yep, that’s the one I meant, too.. :) loved it back then already! I’m still wondering about Rosanna Rory, she seems to have dropped off the screen…

    Here is a foto of a very young Waltraut Haas. Had she been that young while filming William Tell with Errol she might have ended up Mrs. Flynn. But they got along quite well because she really is palsy star. Shamrock posted about her on the blog misspelling her name Hass- can anyone tell we why his entries are gone?
