Bob Shayne In "Tora! Tora! Tora!"

Before heading off to the Ventura Beach RV Park, I decided to bring along some movies. The Beast has a built-in DVD player and television.

I picked two John Wayne movies to bring: True Grit and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon. I watched True Grit last night and will be watching She Wore A Yellow Ribbon tonight.

Since returning from Hawaii a couple of weeks ago, I've been in kind of a Pearl Harbor mood. Today, I watched Tora! Tora! Tora! It's been a while since I've last screened it.

While watching it, I spotted our very own "Inspector William J. Henderson" from the Adventures of Superman: Robert Shayne. I had forgotten that he had a bit part in the movie. I took some photos of the TV screen during his "big" scene (at least he had some dialog). I sent a photo to his daughter Stephanie. She didn't immediately recognize the movie.

The movie was produced around 1969-70. As Shayne was born in October 1900, he was around 69 or 70 years of age at the time. He looked pretty good and was wearing a tuxedo.

A photo of his scene is posted at top.
