The Flynn Connection?

21 Nov

Does anything in or about this photo fit or figure in Errol’s life? If so, how so?

    It’s not the cigarette. Nor the girl in the background.

    Probably something to do with life in general as Errol really knew how to live it his way like two days in one by the looks of it!

      Very clever and creative perspective, Don Jan. I didn’t think of the LIFE logo as being a clue in that way. It’s included simply because it was on the best image I found of these two international superstars during this movie premier.

      Perhaps this angle is better:

    Flynn did appear n the cover of Life Magazine on May 23. 1938 …

      Thank you, David. Back then I believe it may have been an even bigger deal for a Hollywood celebrity to make the cover of LIFE. For this post, however, we’ll need to concentrate on glamor girl, not glamor boy.

        To me Errol will always stand out as quintessential. He did what he felt like, he defied the normal! No one can copy him and should not either as he was simply unique! There is only one Errol Flynn in history and there will never be another! We do not need replicas! We honor this grand fellow. Angel to some people or not to others, he did what he did. 100% admiration for him sine 1985. Thanks to the magnificent blog and the BOSS (DDW) who created it we are able to voice our opinion and let it be positive.

        The answer to this quiz is worth many grand and in some expert opinions one of the best of its kind ever. Here’s a fun and unique question mark.

          Kate Moss??

            Yes Sir Ree, D.J., it’s Katie Moss. You’re inside and very close.

    And it’s not Flynn’s footwear or cigarette holder, nor the similarity of Johnny Tonto Depp to the Indian Head logo over Lili’s right shoulder! btw, Lili’s dressed in white, too!

      Talking about cig holder I have a tortoise shell early vintage holder apart from other personally owned items, I would say that is dedication, right? I search and find …and want!

        Dedication indeed, D.J.!

        These photos are not clues:

    Is this the connection?

      Yes, Maria! Mrs.Flynntastic!! Lili/putian-like Katie Moss in her heyday – then both the littlest and biggest supermodel in the world – on the “Red Carpet” at the World Premier of boyfriend Johnny Depp’s “Ed Wood”.

      Kate is said to have found the Lili Damita’s beaded see-through part of this gorgeous ensemble at an LA vintage dress shop. Can you imagine discovering such a past perfect piece of wardrobe and history?! … Young Kate evidently used to search such shops frequently. Perhaps someone should buy all her old outfits and open a “Mossed and Found” line/franchise.

      Lili sure was a dapper flapper!

        OK help me out now – do you refer to the black or white beaded see through number? I’m slow, dense, confused LOL! I think you referred to white one but not sure! What a find, either way, is right! I am re-reading MWWW’s right now – its downright glum and depressing in parts – the poor EF was so tortured at times….just to the part about his on again off again with LD – and the suicide contemplations. Sigh…poor man. He suffered so much.

          I know it is so sad to read. I think there is something to be said about living your “real ” life. Drinking does not help as it can cause serious depression in people – you end up on a merry go round. How many young stars of today have killed themselves…so sad. I always felt (and this is my own opinion) that Errol just went into denial mode -which makes me feel that he could not trust anyone enough to confide in.

          The white one, T.Z. Same color as the Coca Cola fairy dust that may have had them looking like “underfed tykes”!

    I must be a dinosaur with head in sand as I have NO idea who these two underfed tykes are. Nor do I even care; to me, there is NO comparing this cover to Flynn’s cover!

      Aye aye, Zacasauras!

      You may know the underfed male tyke (Tyke-Rex) by his anthropodic appellation. explains:

        LOL! I’m sorry if I sound so crass or flippant…I didn’t mean to, its just that t live in the Ice Age – I don’t keep up with the new Hollywood set – dyed in the wool fan of the 30’s, 40’s genre of stars. Thanks for enlightening me! (I still think they are awfully thin but then she IS a model….sigh….or was…)

          Don’t feel so bad Zaca! Some of the styles today are a bit scary- I tried to find a photo with Lili wearing the dress but no luck. Some time ago I found a photo of Errol wearing a Brocade- design tuxedo jacket and wouldn’t you know that Matthew McConaughey has something similar-Matthew is know for his excellent style sense -I bet he did not know that Errol wore it first!

      Oops, as underfed as you state she was, Zacasauras, I almost missed Miss Mossasaurus.…
