Mail Bag! Rick Rubin’s former home, 2451 Laurel Canyon Blvd. & Errol Flynn!

My name is Hamish and I am writing a book about the Red Hot Chili Peppers. As you may know they (along with many other bands) recorded a few of their albums in Rick Rubin’s former home, 2451 Laurel Canyon Blvd.

That property, along with 2400, has long been associated with Errol Flynn, but I can’t find any proof he was ever there. It regularly gets referred to as his house, or a house he at least stayed at; on your website you mention it was a reputed location for parties. I was wondering if you had any idea where I could look to find some definitive sources either way?

Thank you

Hamish

Errol Flynn About Late May of 1937 to Late June!

Errol Flynn is working on The Perfect Specimen which began filming on May 15th and will run thru June and into mid-July. On Errol’s birthday, June 20th, he enters his two Rhodesian Ridgeback ‘lion dogs’ in the Pasadena Kennel Club, Summer Dog show at Busch Gardens. Jimmy McManus of Ruggles Kennels will handle the two dogs in the competition. Errol does not attend and the dogs did not win, but received a lot of interest. Flynn is very proud.

Enjoy …

Mail Bag! Errol Flynn’s boat TONGA!

In the Mail Bag come this message about Errol Flynn’s Tonga:

To whom it may concern,

I recently found your blog site and loved reading about Flynn. With that in mind I recently purchased the stern name from his boat Tonga. I am very interested in learning anything you know about the boat. When did he own it and and stories you know. Above all I would love to find any photos of the boat especially with any clarity as most are fuzzy. This is the name I purchased from the boat and was gifted to a family in st Pete who sailed it many years ago.

Thank you in advance for any info or photos you have of it? Also it’s rumored Flynn sold out gifted it to the zorro actor John carrol…any knowledge of that would be helpful.

I’m very interested in what you find. I am in love with the Tonga piece I bought it’s really cool and amazing looking in person. Here are some articles I found.

The Tonga articles:

If you scroll down on the larger boats they list the Tonga and Flynn as original owner.

Cool article that mentions the tonga was a used by celebrities in honor of Flynn.
