Mail Bag: Errol Flynn & Frank Sinatra Obsessed with a Four Letter Word

16 Jan

The Mail Bag brings an interesting question from Mike Harwood. Whst is the 4 letter word Errol Flynn and Frank Sinatra were obsessed with?

Hi there,

Did you ever find out what the four-letter word beginning with M was that Flynn & Sinatra were supposedly obsessed with?
There’s a copy of the Saga magazine on abebooks but the international postage would be twice the cost of the magazine for me.  The seller does include a picture of the article but the answer is evidently on the next page!
I’m wondering if it is a woman’s name like Mary, possibly an actress, but it would be a funny way of referring to a person!
Mike Harwood.
Thanks, Mike!

    Thanks, David. I was intrigued by the Saga cover while reviewing a gallery of the magazine, and Google brought me to your unresolved discussion here in 2011. I might just drop an e-mail to the seller as well but maybe somebody out there already knows the answer by now.
    I don’t use Facebook so if you get an answer there, let me know!
