Errol Flynn’s Relatives in Sligo, Ireland?

29 Apr

The Mail bag brings a request by Errol’s daughter Rory Flynn:

She writes –

“My grandfather‘s brother lives in Ireland (one of them) the other lives in Sydney that I know (if they’re still alive), and I know they have children but I’m just wondering if anybody has any connections to Sligo, Ireland … and knows of any of the relatives of Errol that still live in there?”
Thanks, Rory …
Sligo, Ireland

Errol Flynn and the Backslap Case Bahamas March 1952!

07 Apr

The “backslap” case against Duncan McMartin that took place in the Bahamas in mid-March, 1952

To set the scene, we will begin about mid-February while Errol is in Los Angeles recuperating from a fractured bone in his foot. He was injured during the filming of AGAINST ALL FLAGS on Feb. 1st. The foot was placed in a cast and Errol was given a cane to get around.

The cast was to remain for about 6 weeks, so production was halted.

But … as usual, Errol does not slow down. We pick it from there.
