On the lighter side ...
An LA Mirror "Movieland Mystery Photo" in 2010 feature asked readers to identify the young man in a candid photo with a young Elizabeth Taylor.
A second photo (above) showed him in uniform in a still shot from a movie. The Mirror caption reads: "Here’s another photo of our mystery guest with a mystery companion. Aren’t her eyes haunting?"
His name is Jimmy Lydon. Her name is Barbara Belden -- my mother!
The movie is "When the Lights Go On Again," and it came out in 1944, when Barbara Belden was 15 years old.
