Following a visit to the Reagan Library yesterday in Thousand Oaks California, I thought I would make a post in honor of “The Great Communicator” who was a president, governor, and of course an actor.
Ronald Reagan started out in radio but in the late 30s he transitioned into acting. During his time as an actor he was in some memorable films including Dark Victory, Knute Rockne All American, and The King’s Row. However, he was also a part of the political side of Hollywood being a president of the Screen Actors Guild and supporting anti-Communist activities. His first wife was actress Jane Wyman (The Lost Weekend, Johnny Belinda). A lesser known actress, Nancy Davis was Reagan’s second wife who became most famous as First Lady during his presidency.
I would certainly recommend the library because it is informative, located in a nice area, and enjoyable overall.
