Objective Irma!

08 Sep

Eighty years ago this week, Errol was in Jamaica during the hard-hitting “no (official) name” Hurricane of 1947 that hit Southeast Florida. It’s path through the Caribbean and into Miami was similar to Irma’s so far, though, objectively, Irma may prove even more irksome.

On arrival in Miami – on his way to film Don Juan – newspapers published the following report and photo:

“Errol Flynn and his wife, Nora, are pictured on their arrival here by plane from Jamaica. Their flight course closely paralleled the course of the hurricane. ‘Shocking and sad, ‘ Flynn said of storm-wrecked Miami.” Flynn and wife are shown on the stairs of an airplane.”
