“A Slight Misunderstanding”

29 Jun

June 28, 1938

Evening Herald Express

ERROL FLYNN, WIFE ‘SCENE’ EXPLAINED

Errol Flynn and his wife, Lili Damita, explained today it was a “slight misunderstanding” that sent Lili running half the length of an airport runway chasing him and a transport plane.

The Irish actor, so-called “glamour boy” of the movies, needed to grow a beard for a picture, it seems, and decided to be alone while he did it. He went to San Diego, for two days but neglected to tell his wife. She was waiting at Union Air Terminal when he flew in.

Everybody got out of the plane but Flynn. He saw the flash in Lili’s dark eyes and an angry foot-tapping. Waving the pilots to go ahead, he ducked down in the seat while the plane taxied toward a hangar.

Lili burst through the gate and pattered down the runway at a dead run, clothes fluttering in the propeller’s breeze, an angry airport guard chasing after her.

“Come on, come out, honey,” she cried. Flynn looked out and shook his head. The airport guard ordered Lili off the field. She started off and then the plane started again, and away she went after it.

An airport car and two more guards caught up with Lili and bundled her out the gates.

Flynn popped in to studio car and sped off.

A studio spokesman said that both are happily at home and Flynn had explained away a “slight understanding.”

Union Air Terminal is now known as “Hollywood Burbank Airport”. It’s been said that “Union Air Terminal was always a better place to see movie stars that any place in Hollywood.”

Jeanne Carmen and Dominique..

28 Jun

books.google.com…

So i happened on this book..the whole chapter on Errol is there. Some sound real, some fictional.

His a good chapter but some things jusr ring odd. Why doesnt she pop up in any of EF doc, books, letters, articles etc? They seemed to be good friends.

Now also..they met after john’s death..so 1942..errol was busy filming..then trial..

Buster would have been at Mulholland but no mention..

Could her son have embellished her diaries?

Input? And who would Dominique be??

 

New found info:

The all chapter is not from real events.

www.glamourgirlsofthesilverscreen.com…

When it is claimed she met Errol she was 12 living in New York. The orgie that he supposedly had in Mulholland, well again she was in New York..

She met him in 1957..during Too Much too soon..that was it. He lived with Pat at that time.

The all chapter sounded fishy, well it is

Book on the Duke Of Windsor and Wallis provides shocking revelations!

26 Jun

Has anyone here at the Errol Flynn blog read the outstanding book “King Of Fools” by John Parker which reveals the true story of King Edward VIII who abdicated his throne for American divorcee Wallis Simpson? Once his brother became King George VI, and Edward was merely the Duke Of Windsor, the former king was under constant surveillance of British intelligence MI5.  By pure happenstance someone else was also observed by MI5 through his connection to the Duke.  Conjecture?  Maybe? John Parker had access to now de-classified British Intelligence files and Home Office files. I read this book twice from cover to cover and was astonished! Ralph Schiller
