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!

What person that Errol greatly admired had once taught fencing?


Fencing is not what he’s famous for.

It’s not certain whether he taught Errol.

He was very accomplished and respected in his profession, in which fencing skills were not required.

The below photo is not him. It is Aldo Nadi, who Errol also knew, but did not admire in the way he admired this quiz’s mystery man.
