Hugh O'Brian

The LA Times did a profile on actor Hugh O'Brian (who thanks Ida Lupino for giving him his big break):

When he was a 17-year-old Marine on weekend leave, Hugh O'Brian made easy money washing the storefront windows on Hollywood Boulevard.

It was 1943 and O'Brian would go up and down the 6600 block of the boulevard, earning extra cash for his labors — money he said he generally used to help pay for dates.

But it was his fame as an actor that permanently cemented his relationship with this famous street. His star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was dedicated in 1960 — 6613 Hollywood Blvd., smack in the middle of the neighborhood where he once washed windows.

Sitting on a recent afternoon at a sidewalk table with his wife, Virginia, outside the Lucky Devils gastro pub in the middle of the block, the 88-year-old actor said he has been drawn again and again to this stretch of the boulevard.

Wyatt Earp. Wyatt Earp.
Brave, courageous and bold.
Long live his name.
Long live his glory.
And long may his story be told!
