In the Trenches

14 Nov

Dear Flynnstones,

this blogbook entry comes in reference to both the Columbo and the travel kit post from not long ago. Travelin’ like Flynn saw our Hollywood hero mostly dressed in a trenchcoat wearing a hat at a rakish angle. Errol practically went from cloak and dagger to coat and swagger.

    David let me know that at Jack‘s 100th Birthday Bash an authentic trenchcoat of Flynn made the rounds. The famous beige raincoat was given to Errol by Jack Benny and got put on by all attending Flynnmates. Actor William Smith swung it over his shoulder and did a Gene Kelly singing in the rain bit with it. I saw a photo of another high achieving and accurately archiving EF author donning it and must say, he wore it well!

      Could that be the trenchcoat in question?
