1248) Patrice Wymore

Patrice Wymore Flynn (1926 – 2014). American film, television and stage actress of the 1950s and 1960s, known for her marriage to Errol Flynn.
Her first film appearance was in the 1950 film Tea for Two, opposite Doris Day and Gordon MacRae. That same year she starred in Rocky Mountain opposite Hollywood legend Errol Flynn, with whom she would become romantically involved. At the age of 23, she married the 41-year-old actor in October 1950.
She temporarily retired from Hollywood after giving birth to her daughter, Arnella Flynn, born December 25, 1953. In 1955 she appeared with her husband Errol Flynn and Anna Neagle in the film version of King's Rhapsody. Although only in his forties, Flynn was already in a physical and mental decline by the time they married. Wymore took a break from acting to care for her now ailing husband, and to better raise their daughter, while settling on their estate in Jamaica. However, due to Flynn's alcohol and drug addictions, the couple separated. They never divorced, however, and were still married at the time of his death on October 14, 1959.

- "She was a gaunt woman in a pair of pink skinny jeans, her reddish-blonde hair concealed beneath a scarf..."…
