He was known as the Tasmania Devil, The Swashbuckler, and The Baron of Mulholland Errol Flynn was the most dashing and reckless actor to take Hollywood by storm in the 1940s. But Flynn's antics off-screen far overshadowed his brief but brilliant prime as the biggest box-office star at Warner Brothers. He was LEGEND. But sometimes legends can turn out to be darker. With scandalous whispers of being a nazi spy, heroine trips, and two-way mirrors and sex parties in his Mulholland it was no wonder he was introduced with the promiscuous catchphrase, “In like Flynn” in ep. 93 we will take a dive into Errol’s early life, career and death. In the Paranormal Association, we learn that Tracy Nelson the Daughter of former teen heartthrob and singer Rick Nelson had lived in one of Flynn’s most notorious homes. It was there where she claimed to have been haunted by the spirit of Errol Flynn and had witnessed the chain of events that led to her father’s tragic end.

The cemetery was established as Sunset Cemetery in 1905 but had been used for burials since the 1880s. In 1926 the name was officially changed to Westwood Memorial Park and was later changed again to Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park & Mortuary.
Although it is the resting place of some of Hollywood's greatest names, it also contains the graves of many uncelebrated people. Most of those famous names laid to rest within Westwood Memorial include Marilyn Monro, Jack Lemon, Natalie Wood, Hugh Hefner, Eva Gabor, Dorothy Stratten, Walter Matthau, Kirk Douglas, Dean Martin, Carolyn O'Connor, Eva Gabor, and Fanny Brice.

Ep. 88 The Winchester Revisited with special guest, writer & haunted historian, Christiane Franke
We love a good gothic ghost story! There's one that comes to mind that manifested here in the state of California, The Legend of Sarah Winchester and the ghosts that built the Winchester mansion. According to legend, Sarah had an around-the-clock crew of craftsmen who were hired to construct her house that was designed by ghosts. The unique design of staircases leading to nowhere with twisted corridors and 160 rooms. This project was to be a lifelong project to appease the spirits of the people killed by the Winchester rifles. However, quite a few historians suggest a much more mundane explanation, such as our special guest Christiane Franke.
"Sarah Winchester was an intelligent woman and architect, but she was painted as a crazy old woman who lived alone..." explains Christi. "She took care of everyone, you wanted to work for her..."
Let's go beyond the legend with Christi as we revisit The Winchester Mansion to separate fact from fiction.
