    OK the wall of portraits is in a sport club – Hollywood or ???
    a club that Flynn belonged to, and John Wayne I think.
    The foyer is a hotel (duh) but blanking out on which one.
    The um, covered topside of a fetching blonde – Harlow?
    And the top photo – ugh…you got me.

      Zaca! You’re almost there!

      Yes, that’s Jean Harlow (naked in a white fur), and that’s the exterior and lobby of a famous Hollywood athletic club that Errol belonged to, along with Duke Wayne. Duke is irrelevant to the legendary event that is the subject of this quiz, but I imagine he would have loved seeing it!

    Well GT if my mind serves me right – the story goes something like this; Errol stood up Harlow one night and went to the Hollywood Athletic Club – soon after Harlow showed up as we know how Harlow can be Harlow wearing only a white fur; another words completely naked underneath! .huba-huba!!!! LOL!

      Si, Sir Sergio, that’s it, the naked alleged truth. Congratulations! Hollywood was really something in those days … especially if you were Errol Flynn.

      Harlow must’ve been quite a handful.

        She was something that Harlow; only Errol could have turned something that, ahem, Fun down!

        When you have so many to choose from as he did, well a flick of the finger would have filled that void any second of the day…
        She did live life to its fullest as Errol, well maybe not to its full extent as Errol, yet she did enjoy a very fun life nevertheless, and wild one for sure.
        So tragic to be so full of life and gone so young…
