When The Living Is Easy
“Boy what a life,” you may sigh, enviously. But these pictures of a young fellow enjoying his place in the sun don’t tell the whole story of Bob’s movie life. No star works harder or takes his work more seriously. Young Wagner didn’t win Photoplay’s Gold Medal on looks alone. In two years he’s made eight movies become a boxoffice name. That meant endless rehearsals, dramatic and voice lessons—he still believes he has a lot to learn—going on long trips across country on personal appearances, doing the million and one things demanded of anyone in the star spotlight. For “Prince Valiant,” Bob had to spend long hours perfecting himself in the use of medieval weapons, learning the art of falconry—which looks easy but isn’t. By the time the last scene had been played and the film was edited, cut and in the can, Bob Wagner had earned that period between picture assignments when the living is easy.
HO, HUM—TIME TO GET GOING . . .
TO THE ARROWHEAD SPRINGS HOTEL POOL.
SHUFFLEBOARD ANYONE? RELAXES THE MUSCLES!
NOTHING LIKE A SHOWER TO PEP UP A GUY
EXIT MR. WAGNER—FEELING MIGHTY FINE
