Mail Bag! Who is that Mystery Woman with Errol Flynn?

08 Aug

We received a nice email today referring to a photo published on the blog with the question Who is the lady? Although our Author Mary Ann discovered the answer, this, too, confirms the facts from a great source.


The  mystery woman is my mother, Lorraine Issa and that photo was taken at The Tower Isle Hotel which was built and owned by My father, Abe Issa (Jamaica’s Father Of Tourism). It opened in 1949 and hosted many celebrities from around the world.  Errol Flynn was A friend of both my parents and was a frequent visitor to the hotel.  In 1978, the hotel became the worlds 1st all-inclusive hotel for couples only. It was called Couples Ocho Rios but after an extensive renovation years later, changed the name to Couples Tower Isle which it is now called.
