Flashback To 1952: Robert Mitchum’s Homemade Luxury Motor Home

FLASHBACK to September 22 1952: As with many other screen star who lives in the goldfish bowl called Hollywood, Robert Mitchum likes to escape the public gaze whenever possible on hunting and fishing trips. For the twin purpose of privacy and mobility on his jaunts he designed and built a super luxurious house-truck. In his custom land- cruiser Mitchum can enjoy all the comforts of home wherever his fancy takes him. Here the motion picture actor leaves his driveway with two of his children; Jim (11) and Chris (8). Mrs. Mitchum and their daughter Pertine, who remained behind, wish them farewell.
