Warners are remaining absolutely mum on the subject of Errol Flynn, whose picture, Robin Hood, was enthusiastically greeted at a preview last night. Flynn, so far as know, is still aboard his yacht in waters off the Bahamas. [Warners] cannot get Flynn to say yes or no about returning for Sister Act.

As this is written, Flynn is still a holdout on returning to the studio. Warners wanted him badly for Sister Act, but Errol was delayed two and a half weeks in getting away from Miami and, so far, he is refusing to give up his vacation.

Quite a turn of fortune for the Irish actor who, two short years ago, was glad to play a corpse in The Case of the Curious Bride.
