Description by OLDIES.com:
Agar's rise to fame was meteoric. During World War II. the $83-a-month buck sergeant met and later married "America's Sweetheart," Shirley Temple, and was soon offered a screen test and dramatic instruction by Hollywood mega-mogul David O. Selznick. He co-starred in his very first film, director John Ford's magnificent Fort Apache (1948), and parlayed that impressive debut into a two-decade string of heroic leads. Steady work was the most important thing to Agar, who easily alternated between A-pictures (Ford classics, Sands Of Iwo Jima, and more), drive-favorites (Revenge Of The Creature and Tarantula to name a few), and low-low-budget exploitation items.
A gracious, gentle man, Agar tells the bittersweet tale of his journey through life in this tribute volume, which also includes additional interview material and photos not only from his films but also his private life.
