Peter Lawford

Actor Peter Lawford was a leading man in Hollywood films in the 1940s and 1950s. He was also a member of Frank Sinatra's "Rat Pack." In 1965 Lawford was the director of the film Billie, with actress Patty Duke. The movie was filmed at my high school, University High, and half of the extras on the film were male students (including myself and of course I brought along my Rolleicord IV camera) on the track team.

At the time I made this photograph, I was about 17 and Lawford was about 42. I thought he looked amazingly ancient. Now that I'm quite a bit older than he was at the time I made this photograph, I can see that he looked quite youthful!

Everything is connected in this universe. Lawford was related by marriage to the Kennedy clan, and I have a few Kennedy photographs in this gallery.
