errol, brod,van,harpoA dear, sweet friend of mine located this rare photo from the charity benefit, the Friar Frolics in 1950 with our heroes clowning around.  Errol Flynn is on the left, with Broderick Crawford in drag right after winning an Oscar, Van Johnson on the right and Harpo Marx up front!  Sorry I missed it for the book, Thank you Inga!  Ralph Schiller

    Great photo, Ralph & Inga. Was this from the very first Friars Roast in 1950? In New York or LA. Thanks.

      I honestly don’t know the answer to that one. The Friars are based in New York and it might have been held there especially if it was the first. Thanks Ralph Schiller

        Once again a kind, dear friend came to the rescue with the correct information.
        He wrote….
        And the answers are: The Beverly Hills Friars Club, February 4, 1951; C. Aubrey Smith; and the spires in Tasmania’s Tasman National Park, probably on Cape Raoul.

        Thank you Robert as always for answering all the quiz questions! Ralph Schiler

          Robert’s wrong, Ralph, and my quizzes are for EFB members only. Robert’s membership was terminated.
