    Great find & very cool photo, Maria! Another shot confirming Flynn’s fun-loving, life-of-the-party personality

    I have no idea when, where or why this was taken.

    Perhaps ca. 1940 or so?

    Very Rare! Around the time of Green Light or Prince and the Pauper? No mustache, though!

    Ruling out Tupperware I wonder if this was some charity or publicity event?

    Thanks Delvan! Was it some kind of publicity thing?

      Hi Maria. I don’t know what brought Errol to this home, though I suspect an attractive woman was involved. When I first saw this great find of yours, I noted what appeared to be a modest home, with perhaps Hispanic dinner attendees.

      Other than Thank Your Lucky Stars, I’m not sure how much filming Errol did in ’43. He may have had horses and/or been betting on horses at Hollywood Park, which is very close to the 82nd Street location reported by Delvan (Thank you, Delvan!) The home is just northeast of the track, at the tip of the triangle (with the small green circle on the west end) you can see on the Inglewood map below. (Ignore the red pin on southwest side of track.)

      Just a longshot guess, but noting the Hispanic dinner guests, perhaps this home had some connection to a jockey or trainer?

      I believe this is the house:

        Thanks for the information! He looks so relaxed – must have been great food and good company!
