Pat Boone and family arrive in Los Angeles

Pat Boone and family arrive in Los Angeles

June 1, 1959: Music star Pat Boone with his family: from left, Lindy, 3; wife Shirley; Cheryl, 4; Laurie, 1; and Debbie, 2. The Boones were arriving at the airport in Los Angeles for Pat Boone’s filming of “Journey to the Center of the Earth.”

The family was met at the airport by a Los Angeles Times photographer after an American Airlines flight from New York City.

This image was not published in 1959, but similar posed airport images of Pat Boone and his family were published in 1957 and 1958 in the L.A. Times. Being the best of the three photos, this image was published in the 1999 Los Angeles Times book, “High Exposure: Hollywood Lives — Found Photos From the Archives of the Los Angeles Times.”
