I grew up in Los Angeles, in an area called North
Hollywood. I graduated from high school in 1957 and just by chance was watching television
one night and spotted this travel adventure film, featuring Georgie White. I hadnt
decided what I really wanted to do but this looked really exciting, this looked just as
exciting as racing cars, which I liked to do: build up cars and stuff. So I set out to
track her down.
I didnt find her living in Vernal, Utah, or someplaceI found her
in L.A. in Englewood.
Shed have these River Rat parties. Theyd rent the Mayflower
Ballroom, and thered be hundreds and hundreds of people come, and shed show
all these 16-millimeter movies. She was a real avid photographer at the
timeshed take movies on all her trips, and then have a River Rat party, show
all her movies, have a party! She was into that part of it.
