VETERAN ACTOR JOHN MITCHUM LIVED IN VALLEY GLEN

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY           2011

Before Marc Wanamaker's lecture on the San Fernando Valley and the Motion Picture business last evening, I was at last able to meet Cindy Mitchum from Portland, Oregon. To The Museum's good fortune, Cindy donated to the Archives of The Museum four important photographs related to her father John Mitchum's career in film and television.

Early in his career, John Mitchum had a strong resemblance to his older brother the actor Robert Mitchum.

 One of John Mitchum's most popular roles was as the policeman Frank DiGiorgio in the Dirty Harry films. This photograph was from the film Magnum Force.
