Evviva La Diva

18 Nov










Dear Flynnstones,

Tiger Lil started her way to film world and Flynn fame via Vienna:…

The historic photographic studio MENASSE helped pave this catwalk (…) to Hollywood with a series of collector postcards.

The motives varied from Orientalistic ornament

to Ingénue Deluxe









to Good Sport Tomboy









to White Rajahresse.

    Thank-you Heinz; Lili Damita was an eternally beautiful woman who could turn any man’s head even Errol Flynn’s.

      Lil was a headturner (and a headscratcher for Errol in their marriage) since the day she first set foot on American soil. Here she is on her first oversee trip to the US (dated Sept. 5th 1931) on the SS Bremen.
