The Lawman goes to Disneyland
Today, if you see a celebrity at Disneyland, chances are they have an entourage of security and a tour guide with them, briskly ushering them through the attractions and keeping them away from guests. Can't say I blame 'em! Back in the day (which in this case is February 15, 1959), celebrities mixed with us real folks, and even allowed their photos to be taken! Definitely a different time. Here is John Russell aboard a raft on the Rivers of America, enjoying a day with his wife Renata Titus and three kids (yes, the matching plaid!). If you don't know who John Russell is (I know that I didn't!), he was the star of the ABC western television series "Lawman," from 1958—1962. The lucky fan who got her picture taken with him seems beside herself at her good fortune!
