Studio shots of William Sargent (soft-focus) in the foreground during a rehearsal on the movie 'Savages'. Sitting next to William is Telly Savalas and Burt Lancaster is standing.
In this rehearsal scene we see William Sargent standing with Burt Lancaster. William played the assistant DA in this film.
If you planned to stay in LaLa Land you had to have a car, get some 8x10 glossies shot, find an agent, upgrade your summer wardrobe and maybe hang out at Schwab’s Drugstore where you might meet Sidney Skolsky, who would, if you got lucky, do a column on you some day. Dreamer!
He was totally dedicated and absorbed with flying and I rarely saw him again after that day. He was now traveling in other circles. I did get hooked on flying for a while, and later even bought myself a little 1947 Cessna 120, while at Colortran, flying around for a while. One day, visiting a friend in the Lancaster area I cracked up in a bad landing at Quartz Hill, Ca. I wasn’t hurt though the plane was, and I had second thoughts about my prowess as a pilot.
