“The Happiest Millionaire” Premiere – 1967
Here’s a few more photos from Bruce Daggett. I’ll let him explain.
“I had these pictures from an outing of the Band to help kick off the premier showing of The Happiest Millionaire in Philadelphia.
The movie starred Fred MacMurry and [the premiere] was held at the Boyd Theater located at 1908 Chestnut Street on October 20,1967.
Fred was known to be a sax player and the picture is of him holding my sax. I thought it was a great picture of the Duke.
As a comment, we have so much to be thankful for because of the talents of Mr. Jesse E. Hartman who took all these shots and many many others.
I don’t know if he was on retainer by the school, but Jesse was a professional photographer from Havertown, PA who always was on location at the many Forge events.
Hope you enjoy!
