A Not So Grand Day

16 Oct

October 16, 1942

Errol leaves the Los Angeles Grand Jury Room after testifying concerning allegations of committing statutory rape against two California teenagers, Peggy LaRue Satterlee and Betty Hansen. The Grand Jury voted not to indict because there was not enough evidence to bring a case to trial. Nevertheless, in a rare and rather astonishing move, the LA District Attorney decided to prosecute.

Adverse Circumstances

10 Oct

Would Errol have been better than the usually great Fredric March in this film? I believe so.

Warner Brothers are so enthused about Errol Flynn’s work in Captain Blood that they would like to give him the lead in Anthony Adverse only there’s a slight catch, as they already signed Fredric March for the part. Nevertheless, seeing how Errol is under a long-term contract to them and March isn’t, maybe they’ll give it to him and put Freddy in something else.

Helping the Old Sol in Chico

Old Sol is being amplified by electrical generators on the location site of The Adventures of Robin Hood at Chico. When the sun failed to beam, the company employed the generators. Then the generators failed. At least one of them blew out yesterday afternoon. Al Alborn, the company manager, promptly called the studio to order another generator to be sent out. Fifteen minutes after his call was received, the new generator was on its way to Chico, 600 miles away. It arrived in time for the regular shooting schedule this morning.

Errol Flynn heard yesterday for the first time that he had pneumonia when he was so critically ill last week. So remarkable was his recovery that he is expected to go home today, and Lili Damita will sail Thursday on the Queen Mary. Errol’s doctors have ordered him to rest for two weeks, after which he is to report to Warner studio for Dodge City.

Errol Flynn went from the hospital to Edmund Goulding’s house at Palm Springs. He wanted to take a trip to Mexico City, but doctors vetoed it.

…….

Perhaps Errol just needed some nursing South of the Border, rather than what he was receiving in the U.S.:

If only he could have waited till ’42, when Lili became a nurse…

First Blood, Then the World

By Lloyd Pantages

After Captain Blood is released Warners are a cinch to tear up Errol Flynn’s contract and slip him a new one. They originally signed him literally on a shoe string and they did nothing about him until the other studios started bidding for his services. Now that he’s doing so magnificently in the Blood epic, he’s sure fire for better consideration.
