Birthday boy Johnny Weissmuller is pictured here modeling the BVD swimwear line, which he traveled cross-country to promote. At a hotel on one of these trips, Weissmuller befriended a little boy and taught him to swim. The boy was mysteriously accompanied by two big, well-dressed men at all times. Shortly after the little boy left the hotel, a package was delivered to Weissmuller with an expensive watch and a note that read: “Thanks for taking care of my son. —Al Capone”.

Fascinating yet disturbing image of young Drew, Joe. She was definitely headed into self-destruction, another Hollywood child star casualty, and a destiny not completely surprising given her heritage. But thankfully she saved herself from an ignominious final curtain call and really became a fine actress, producer, wife and mother - not to mention a knowledgeable "Essentials" co-host.

God bless her.
