    The tops for me were:


    Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Rosalind Russell and Ross Martin. On a movie location, chatting 5 feet from me. The director called the shot was ready for them. The scene was of Russell and Fairbanks having a little pictnic at the beach. Russell had arthritis so bad she needed two crewmen to help her up and down off the blanket . Took two takes and that was it. They didn't seem to recognize me.

    Gregory Peck at a sneak preview of a movie he produced.

    Robert Mitchum in a local hardware store in Santa Barbara.

    Willian Shatner on a location at the Santa Barbara Courthouse . I was in a nearby phone booth and turned around and he was grinning at me waiting for the phone. He didn't ask for my autograph.

    Vic Morrow on a location shoot at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Different film.

    Burl Ives on a location shoot near the SB Couthouse. Different film.

    Robert & Ethel Kennedy one block from the Santa Barbara couthouse. He was assassinated a few days later in LA.

    Ronald Reagan, twice. Once on a movie location in the San Fernando valley and years later when he was running for governor.


    Had my pic taken with:

    World Heavyweight Champion Mike Weaver.

    SF 49'er kicker, Ray Wershing.

    lots of others, but those were highlights.

    He even posed for a picture with my dog.

    I call it "God meets Dog".
