Actress Patrice Wymore, the widow of Errol Flynn, has died. She was 87. The Kansas-born Wymore started on Broadway in the late 1940s and appeared in her first film, Warner Bros’ Tea For Two, with Doris Day and Gordon MacRae in 1950. The same year, she played opposite Flynn in Rocky Mountain. The pair married in 1950, and she went on to star with him in 1955’s King’s Rhapsody. Her other roles include a small part in the 1960 Rat Pack classic Ocean’s Eleven. Flynn died in 1959, and Wymore never remarried. After guest appearances on Perry Mason and F Troop, among others, she retired to her cattle ranch in Portland, Jamaica, where she died Saturday, according to Reuters. A film about Flynn, The Last Of Robin Hood, recently premiered in Toronto.
