    An outstanding Hollywood talent who grew up in the industry and gave it substance and guidance. As a U.S. Naval Aviator he served his nation with dedication and humility representing the very best of his generation. He leaves us with a treasure of historic memories of the 1930’s and beyond. A gifted man with passion and sincerity for his craft and his nation.
