Once called the perfect example of a homeless waif by director Cecil B. DeMille, Junior Coghlan acted in movies for over 70 years. Perhaps best remembered for his role as Billy Batson in the Republic serial The Adventures of Captain Marvel, he has worked with many of the legends of Hollywood, such as Charlie Chaplin, Mickey Rooney, Jackie Cooper, and Shirley Temple.

Included here are the stories of Coghlan's 23-year naval service (he enlisted as an aviator during World War II and rose to the rank of lieutenant commander) and his eight years as the naval liaison and technical advisor on such films as The Caine Mutiny and Mr. Roberts. A filmography traces his career.

About the Author:

The late Frank (Junior) Coghlan, Jr., (March 15, 1916-September 7, 2009) made 129 film and television appearances between 1920 and 1974. His joke when he visited McFarland in the early nineties was to say with a twinkle in his eye just They still call me, referring to his Hollywood and naval friends.

Review:

"A fact-filled autobiography by an actor with a phenomenal memory and a deep affection for the film industry.... Recommended." --Classic Images

"Well written autobiography...extensive filmography...well illustrated." --Big Reel

"By far the easiest read and the most pleasant link with the magnificent aura that is the motion picture industry...a book you simply can't put down...outstanding excursion through motion picture history." --Movie Collector's World
