Master Roddy McDowall, just turned 12, arrived in Los Angeles yesterday from bomb-racked London with fantastic adventures to tell.
WALKED INTO LUCK
It was then, just like in the movies, that Roddy saved the day for the McDowalls. He walked right into one of the most important movie roles of the year.
That’s why he was here today, to go before the cameras shortly on the 20th Century-Fox lot.
"It’s exciting over there," said Roddy, who thinks Los Angeles is too quiet. "The Jerries used to come over every night.
"We live rather near the Croyden Airport and they got us once. They ripped a hole in our roof and I couldn’t take a bath at home after that. They smashed all our windows, too, and the wind came right into our house."
