TRIGGER SETS OFF
HAPPY DAYS FOR
CHILDREN IN MOVIES
little 10-year-old Bobby Driscoll
and his movie girl friend, 8-year-old
Luana Patten, certainly have a
in a movie
with Roy Rogers!
I talked with Bobby's mom, Mrs.
Isabel Driscoll, and she said he
was up every morning early these
days, pacing the floor while, she
got ready to go to the studio with
him. He wanted to enter the lot a
half-hour early at 8:30, to Jalk to
Roy and his horse Trigger, but the
child-labor laws won't let him
enter until 9.
Mrs. Alberta Patten said Luana
was bouncing right out of bed at
7:30 so's not to keep Trigger wait
ing. The first day a lot of wonder
ful things hapenped she got her
fringed suede cowgirl outfit with
boots and yellow felt hat but she
told her pa what was best of all:
"Daddy, I got to sit on Trigger!"
Bobby and Luana are in a se
quence, "Pecos Bill," in a Walt Dis
ney folklore movie. Around a camp
fire and artificial cactus inside a
sound stage, Roy tells 'em what
makes coyotes howl.
Growing movie fame doesn't
seem to have spoiled Bobby and
Luana. Bobby, born in Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, was discovered for
pictures by a barber in Pasadena,
near here, whose son was a movie
actor. Luana, born in Long Beach,
also near here, was spotted bv a
magazine-cover photographer on
the shore there. She has been on
nearly 200 magazine covers and
a lot of calendars since she was
two and a half.
Bobby has to keep his room
clean at home and dries the even
ing dishes when he's not working
on a picture. Luana does the same.
They reckon they've seen just
about every Roy Rogers movie in
the last few years, at Saturday
matinees. Fact is, I went to one
with Bobby, and he sat on the edge
of his seat the whole time. Bobby,
has seen about. 30 Rogers pictures
