    Hi- I did find an article about Hal on Google. He DOES look like Errol – except for his nose.

    news.google.com…

    If you could try and get the photo off this site – much appreciated. I can’t do it.

      You are incredible, Maria! What an awesome researcher.
      He sure seems to fit the bill. I’m driving long distance at the moment and can’t read the article on my cell, but will do so as soon as I can! Thank you, Maria!

        Virginia City & “San Antone”! We’ll have to take a close look for Hal someday, Maria!! …. I couldn’t produce a copy of the photo here, but I could up above.

        … Yes, I think he does resemble Errol enough to be his stunt double! He looks, however, like he took a few more serious bangs on the nose than did Errol. (Most likely from stunt crashes, of course, but maybe he knew Lili too.)

    I know for sure. the claim was for publicity wherever the thrill show was appearing. the claim was not true. I have pictures in which Mr. Fultz (real surname) looks quite a bit like Flynn. eric f.
