Flynn Digs Quiz

28 Mar

Errol rather notably stayed at a home where two Hollywood megastars later lived, one fictionally, one in real life.

Where was that home?

    Both megastars were male.

    Both megastars were once married to famous actresses (though neither were married while they were living at the location in question.)

    In addition to having married major Hollywood actresses, both of these megastars also married major TV actresses.

    One of them was born in Oklahoma. The other in New York state.

    They once co-starred in a (very big) movie together.

    Tim, is one of the male stars Brad Pitt (born in Oklahoma)?

      OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH, Yes, Oklahoma-born Brad Pitt!

      Before he hit the big time, he lived in the same home Errol stayed at decades earlier.

      Bradulations, barb!

        P.S. The other star is even bigger than Brad Pitt! …But he only fictionally lived in Flynn’s digs. The fellow below has a connection:

    Sounds like the other megastar is Tom Cruise?–A. R.

    T.C. it is A.R.! Accordingly, I just posted three relevant Rain Man photos above, depicting the location Errol stayed. Here are two of them, the exterior one being the bigger clue

    I never saw Rain Man, so I’m no help there.

    Have you completely stumped us, Tim? :-)

    i apologize for the delay, barb. i’ve been on the road.

    So, we have Flynn, Pitt, and Cruise all staying at this home. Cruise fictionally.

    Plus there was Otto and Beverly!

      No impatience on my part, Tim, just stumped :-) Are you looking for an exact address as opposed to a city?

        Again, my apologies for my delay in replying, barb!.

        It’s one of the Oscar Winning Film locations listed here:

          Tim, first, no apology is ever necessary. You invest so much time and energy into digging up all these gems for the blog and then the quizzes on top of that. There’s never any rush. :-)

          Thank you for the solution to your unsolved quiz! My mind was taking me in a different direction entirely .. when it turned out that Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise were the two actors in question, my mind was thinking about New Orleans because of Interview with the Vampire, in which they co-starred. But that obviously didn’t work with the palm tree or the Flynn/Beverly photo and Otto.

          Kudos to the quizmaster!

            All thanks for this inside information goes to Errol (Reichow), who provided it to the EFB, correcting long-believed incorrect addresses for this historic Flynnian site – the last place Errol (Flynn) lodged in the U.S., before he left for Vancouver. Amazing that Pitt lived there just before his big fame and fortune, and Cruise in Rain Man. (btw, I highly recommend Rain Man to you. It s a GREAT movie. Both Cruise and Hoffman are outstanding in it.)

            Mail Bag! Errol Reichow, on Mr. Errol Flynn, his namesake!

            I have to think of a prize for you, barb! (Of course, you are a relevant prize, in and of yourself!)

              barb, I set my mind upon it
              And this being Easter Week
              Your prize shall be a bonnet
              With a kiss upon the cheek
              From the fellow right below
              …A fellow I know you know

                  Aw, thank you, Tim, but I didn’t solve the quiz! I do share the bonnet with A.R., who came up with Tom Cruise being the other star.

                  A lovely Easter to you all.

                    You didn’t? …In any case, a bonnet and a kiss from the Flynnster for you!! ..And you’re right, A.R. does indeed deserve praise for cruising to that first answer! How about a kiss from Olivia, A.R.?
