    You notice the raincoat that Jack Benny is wearing? It belongs to Flynn. Beverly Aadland sent it along with some other items to the historic Flynn Centennial Bash that was held in 2009 at Jack and Louise Marino’s home in Burbank that last at least 4 days! We all tired on the raincoat, including the ladies present. I think it fit best on actor William Smith who was tall enough to swagger a bit with it, but we all enjoyed wearing it! Actor Paul Picerni who starred in Mara Maru with Errol -and which was screened at the party one night, was also there sharing his memories of Errol. You might also recognise Paul Picerni as a regular cast member of The Untouchables!

    Is this the raincoat on Steve Latshaw, David?

    Paul deserves a big praise for all the great and very cool things he did in and with his life.


    Btw, I believe that other Untouchable with Paul (Elliot Stack) may have grown up in the very Bel Air home at which EF once got himself in some very big trouble for allegedly touching a technically untouchable.
