    Somewhere else i read that Errol was sent to bed that night due to his heart. And that later he couldnt appear in court or something as again he was kept in bed by drs due to his heart.
    From what i read Hadler started it. Well Fleming was later fired anyway for stealing from Errol.

    Spokane Daily Chronicle


    “Actor Errol Flynn made a strange vow outside the county grand jury room yesterday, ‘I’ll never throw another big party as long as I’m in Hollywood…. I didn’t see the trouble,’ Flynn told reporters, ‘But I can say one thing — it has cured me of giving parties.’

    “A fight between his stand-in and secretary James Fleming and Eric Gosta, Barbara Hutton’s butler loaned out for a party June 21 celebrating the actor’s 32nd birthday. Gosta had been in a hospital until recently.

    “Flynn declared he couldn’t say whether either of the men was intoxicated, ‘but as far as Gosta is concerned, I know that some of my guests complained that he was making pink drinks too pink.’

    “One guest muttered, he said, ‘It’s too bad for a bartender to be getting swacked before the guests have a chance a the liquor.'”

    At that time due to Errol`s pest pals like Fleming, Cabot and Freddie Mac Mulfall farm was a toxic environment. You could say it went downhill from that night on. Trial and all. Thick as thieves they were covering each other`s backs for a laugh, a grin or a blow to the chin.
