“Picture. Picture.”

09 Aug

August 9, 1937

Film Flam with Sidney Skolsky

Errol Flynn, while on a boat returning from Spain, was stopped on the deck by a Frenchman who was carrying a camera. The Frenchman said: “Picture. Picture.” Flynn stopped, stood against the rail and posed.

The Frenchman said: “No. No. You Take picture of me.”

C’est La Vie!

      Thanks Debby but all thanks goes to Errol for his wonderful self-deprecating humor. Many if not most superstar celebrities would feel insulted and embarrassed by such a thing. Not Errol. He saw the great humor in it and even shared it with the world through the media.

        That might be so, but you posted it. I never heard this story before so it was a good laugh. But I have to agree that Errol had a wonderful sence of humor
