This is what my source said:
"IN LIKE FLYNN - "Chicago's 'Boss' Flynn's machine never lost an election and
was always 'in office,' inspiring the expression 'in like Flynn,' meaning 'to
have it made.' The popularity of actor Errol Flynn and his amorous activities
helped popularize the phrase in the early 1940s." From "Encyclopedia of Word
and Phrase Origins" by Robert Hendrickson (Facts on File, New York, 1997).
"The Bronx machine that in the thirties under boss Ed Flynn provided the
muscle behind Franklin Roosevelt's ascent to the White House (Flynn became the
national party chairman)." From New York Magazine and Metro TV on the Web
http://www.newyorkmetro.com/nymetro/news/culture/features/1398/ Accessed April
So, the use of the phrase predates Errol Flynn.
