Sal Mineo in a Barrel


May 20, 1958: Actor Sal Mineo says fans stole his clothes and wallet while he was working out at a health club, but after being quoted as saying that he would rather wear a barrel than have a fan accused of stealing, he did just that. Officer Bill Grell is on the right. See more of the story at the LA Times.

Dino (Sal Mineo) faces off with his father, Mr. Minetta (Joe DeSantis – coincidentally my father) in the 1957 film Dino.

Things look grim for Mr. Minetta!

The Old Wolf has spoken.
