    Tim, I am completely stumped. I thought of one name but realized she is still alive and worked with Errol in her second film, not her debut. There was another actress who did debut with Flynn and later became a big character actress and in the 1950’s starred in her own hit television series for 157 episodes but athletic does not decribe her.

      Thanks, Ralph. Tricks are involved with this profoundly popular hero of the Silver Screen, but you may very well get it after these next clues. You will remember this star very well I’m sure.

      1) Started with Warner’s, but did more filming over at Republic Pictures.

      2) Often in Westerns.

      3) Often in Musicals.

      4) A Great Dancer – Not Known for Singing, However.

      5) Once Did a Big Movie Titled After a Cole Porter Song.

      6) Once Did a Big Movie with Bob Hope.

      7) Has an Affiliation with Olivia De Havilland.

      8) A “Blonde” and Always Very Well Groomed.

      9) Photographed Together with Errol in Chico, California.

      10) Born in San Diego.

    Ok I’m going out on a limb here so don’t be too hard on me if I’m wrong are we talking about Trigger the horse?

      Daring Thorpe! Bingo! You are right on the money. Every name I could think of fit only half of the clues given by Tim. Yes trigger starred with Bob Hope and Roy Rogers in Son Of Paleface (1952)!

        Absolutely, Ralph! And Bingo indeed, as it’s often reported that Trigger had a Bing Crosby connection, too, in that he was born on a ranch in San Diego said to have a connection to Hope’s Road show partner.

        Speaking of Crosby, here’s an alternate version of the Cole Porter classic he did with the Andrew Sisters – this version featuring Trigger, Dale & Roy:

      Fantastic, daringthorpe! Going out on a limb really paid off for you – just as it did for Errol’s Merry Men in Trigger’s … I mean Golden Cloud’s … Silver Screen debut as Maid Marion’s closest companion, until Errol came along.
