    This in on the EFB-FB from Patrick Culliton:

    “I can never say because I never met Jim Flynn, but, one of my closest friends did meet him on a set where they were both working. What she told me leads me to believe there is a very good chance that Jim was Errol’s son. Jim Flynn never made anything out of it. He told a few people. The story got quietly around. Most of Hollywood neither knew nor cared.”

    And here is another reference to James being Errol’s son, this one in connection to his friendship with Jared McVay, another Hollywood insider:

    “At one time he ran around Hollywood with Errol Flynn’s son, James, and he’s also worked onstage with Freddy Fender (another close friend), Roy Clark, Minnie Pearl, Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn, doing mostly emcee work and standup comedy.”…

      About Jared McVay:

      “Not enough room here. Suffice to say, besides being a writer for many years – Stringer for several newspapers, my own bi-line for articles in SAG and AFTRA mags., short story writer, screenwriter, and now two books, I’m also a blue water sailor, been a carnival barker, wrestled an ape on exhibition, rode the rails as a hobo for the experience, rodeo clown, storyteller, stand-up comic, MC, electrician, power lineman, owned several companies, circus clown, over 20 years as a prof. actor; Stage, Film and Television, along with some other stuff I can’t think of right now. As my good friend, Jimmy Stewart once said, It really is a Wonderful Life.”

      “JARED McVAY is a four-time award-winning author. He writes several genres, including – westerns, fantasy, action/adventure, and children’s books. Before becoming an author, he was a professional actor on stage, in movies and on television. As a young man he was a cowboy, a rodeo clown, a lumberjack, a power lineman, a world-class sailor and spent his military time with the Navy Sea Bees where he learned his electrical trade. When not writing you can find him fishing somewhere, or traveling around and just enjoying life with his girlfriend, Jerri.”…
