Actor Don Barry was spotted at a UCLA game with a Texas All-Star team. Mickey Rooney attended the game with John Wayne. Even though his team lost 21-14, Barry impressed the two actors who offered to open doors for him if he wanted a film career. Rooney got him a job on "Boys' Town," but Barry kept blowing the scene with Tracy he had been assigned and was replaced. See more »

Very touching story about a man who knows the right thing to do and is selfless in giving the boys a chance at life with no regard to how it might affect his own life. I think that viewing this should be manditory for some of the people who have lost touch of what matters most in this life and it's not money.
