There is a funny story about Errol Flynn.  Hemingway was showing his film "The Spanish Earth" to raise money for the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.  Flynn showed up, not knowing apparently, anything about Hemingway or about Hemingway's politics or feelings about the Spanish Civil War.  The way I heard the story, Flynn--no dummy, if a Fascist--figured out pretty quick what was up, and climbed out a window to escape.
I don't think that this happened in Carmel.  I think it happened in Hollywood.
