Lili Damita, War Hero?

29 May

During legal proceedings against Errol, Lili Damita testified that she suffered an injury while serving her country during World War II. What was that alleged injury, and under what circumstances did Tiger Lil’ allegedly incur her alleged injury?

1. An STD spying for the French underground?

2. A head injury working for the Red Cross?

3. A sprained ankle performing for the USO?

4. A fall from a horse at Camp Pendleton?

5. A fist-fight with Bette Davis at the Hollywood Canteen?, or

6. A cut hand smashing a bottle of Veuve Clicquot over Errol’s skull?

    A. Lili may have been in uniform at the time of alleged injury

    B. The site of the alleged injury had the initials B.H.

    C. She asserted this to Jerry Geisler in 1950

    Lili made this claim during alimony proceedings, specifically testifying that she suffered head injuries in a fall while working during the war.

    When asked by Errol’s attorney, Jerry Giesler, “What battleground was that?”, she answered “Beverly Hills.’


    Flynn (and all his friends) must have had a good laugh at that (or a good cry, because Tiger Lil’ made the claim in order to secure $18,000 per month alimony against Errol!)

    Here’s Lil in her uniform heroically helping Ann Sothern, along with Nora Charles, with Nick nowhere in sight. Apparently Maisie suffered her wartime injuilries prior to Tiger Lil’s “head injuries.”…
