Hollywood Connections

What do Frank Morgan, Danny Kaye, and Lassie have in common? They all have stars in Hollywood, and connections to Borrego Springs.

In 1948, The Wizard of Oz himself, Frank Morgan became the first honorary mayor of Borrego Springs;

One of Director Alicia Wszelaki's favorite memories was seeing her dad Walter Wszelaki watch Danny Kaye movies. He would absolutely have tears in his eyes from laughing;

and of course Lassie, the perfect role model for our own canine star, Teddy.

Last night before the film's screening at the Golden State Film Festival at the TCL Chinese Mann Theatre, cast & crew visited the stars.

Always fun to walk on Hollywood Boulevard, and be sure to watch our homage to these golden era icons in our fundraising video.
