Hatfield House

29 Aug

Hi all- I found an interesting story about Errol’s visit to Hatfield House  in 1954. This is the Errol I like to think about.

When Hollywood Came to Hatfield

I did search before I posted but I apologise  in advance if this has already been recounted.  Wouldn’t it have been great to take the tour with him!

    That is absolutely Flynntastic, Maria! I have never read of this. Such wonderful additional confirmation of Errol’s great soul!! Thank you so very much!!!

    Fascinating, too, the various connections to Professor Flynn, Flora Robson, and, mentioned elsewhere on the site, the DeHavilland Corporation. I imagine Olivia might have visited also.

    Thanks Tim! I think we are seeing that intellectual side peeking through as well as a respect for his hosts. This validates Errol’s early performances to me. I guess it must have been a bit weird to play a role and then view the “real deal”. How many other people would have found something else to do.
