TELLS OF FLYNN ACCUSER’S HOPE FOR MOVIE ROLE

Witness Testifies of Girl’s
Plan to Meet Actor.

Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 25 (M)

A brunette soda fountain girl, Mons Mervyn, today told the jury trying Errol Flynn on statutory rape charges that one of the complaining witnesses, Betty Hansen, informed her she hoped to meet Flynn and get into the movies with his help.

Miss Mervyn said she worked at a drug store where Miss Hansen, a Lincoln, Neb., girl was employed
for two weeks. She said Betty told her she considered Flynn good looking.

Yacht Employee Questioned.

The defense switched to testimony about Miss Hansen after summoning as its first witness Corp. Hubert L. Oliver of Glendale, Cal., now stationed at a Texas army camp. Oliver said he was employed by Flynn as a seaman on his yacht, the Sirocco, that he was aboard the vessel the night 17-year old Peggy La Rue Satterlee, the other complaining witness, contends she was seduced by the screen star.

Oliver testified he heard no disturbance or outcry and that Flynn, to his knowledge, was not below deck at the time of the alleged attack.

Flynn, Oliver said, was at the wheel of the yacht all the way home.

Says Door Won’t Lock.

Mrs. Helga Brabon, former caretaker at the Bel Air home of Fred McEvoy, where Miss Hansen alleged Flynn seduced her, Betty was wrong in saying Flynn locked the door after taking her to the bedroom. She said the door of the room In question has a lock “but it never worked, that I know of, and it still won t work.”

Mrs. Addle E. Odell, operator of a
Hollywood apartment house, said Miss Hansen rented one of her apartments Oct. 1, 1942, as Mrs. Betty Gray. Mrs. Mary Ross, juvenile division policewoman, that Miss Hansen told her Flynn seduced her In a double bad In a large bedroom. This contrasted to Betty’s direct testimony that the alleged seduction occurred In an alcove off the large bedroom.

Jerry Giesler, Flynn’s attorney, said Flynn, himself, will take the stand, probably tomorrow or Wednesday.

Mail Bag! Captain Blood and Elvis!

19 Jan

John and Tom Theiman are twins and both a big Errol Flynn fans and John sendsus this note. English is not his first language:

I’ve got more Flynn news.In Captain Blood when Captain Blood signs Articles of Agreement with his crew the date is June 20th
1687. June 20th. Movie score for Captain Blood is great. Composer
is Korngold. He also does Robin Hood. Robin Hood ranked number 
11 movie score all time. But I believe Blood score is better. Blood is
a great movie, it holds up even today.

Elvis and Errol news. When Hal Wallis ran film test of Elvis he experienced the same thrill when he first saw Errol Flynn on the screen. Hal Wallis,Starmaker. Flynn lives in all of us who love him.
One of my two best friends loves Flynn, too!

See you later.

From Kentucky With Love, John and Tom

Thanks so much,John!

Rory & Sean in Coronado!

19 Jan

Rory & Sean have been a Very Big Hit in Coronado this Weekend, at all the VIP Ceremonies, Rory’s sensational Show about Errol, Dive Bomber, introduced by Sean, and a “The Baron of Mulholland” Meet & Greet/Book Signing.

Chris Lemmon and Leonard Maltin were around. Legendary Flynn-Fan Richard Dreyfuss met with Rory & Sean before the show.

Several festival guests had great stories about Errol. One was a little girl at her aunt’s home in Holmby Hills when Errol came by and read all the kids Peter and the Wolf. One fellow’s father used to watch Errol play tennis at the Hotel Del and said he was incredible, one day nearly beating the top ranked player in California/one of best players in the world. Also heard about Errol socializing with Naval officers at North Island Officers Club, at the Hotel Del bar, and at their homes on Coronado.

P.S. Dive Bomber is extraordinary on the big screen.
