      The man with Errol and Bev was in multiple films with Errol.. His first name includes only two letters, each used twice.

    Tim, these photos were all shot at Otto Reichow’s home in Hollywood Hills, California. A friend of mine went to his home when it was on the market and took pictures of the pool area. He couldn’t get into the house just the backyard.

    Errol was there at Otto’s home right before he flew to Vancouver. There are photos of him posing as the dead Barrymore in his home, which never really happen but Errol loved to tell this urban legend to everyone. I’m sure Errol is telling one of his great Hollywood stories to everyone at this pool party. I don’t remember the date when these pictures were taken but it was a few weeks before he went to Vancouver and passed away.

    These were the last photos of Errol in Los Angeles that were publish in a lot of magazines since they were from Otto’s camera. When Errol died it was huge news in all the papers around the world and magazines. These pictures and there more were all published in all those magazines.

    Where Errol is sitting is a very small place. The yard itself is small and so is the pool. Otto was one of Errol’s pallbearers and very close friends. He works as an extra and silent bit roles in a lot of Errol’s films.

    Otto made many films as an actor and his last film was in 1972 Ulzaula’s Raid with Burt Lancaster he had a pretty big speaking role. He passed in 2000 at the age of 96. To bad Errol didn’t live that long some of us would have gotten to meet him. Otto was born in 1904 so he was a few years older then Errol.
