Actress Leslie McRae Kissing a Marine at Marine Day 1968
From the Burbank Daily Review: “Ten Marines received pecks on the cheek from Miss Leslie McRae, star of ‘Girl in Gold Boots,’ a film premiering in April. These men were winners of cameras from Eastman, Kodak Co.” Marine Day was an annual event held at Burbank's Golden Mall in the late 60s and early 70s. Each year, several hundred Marines from Camp Pendleton were invited to a public celebration at the Mall. The event was followed by a trip to Disneyland in which the Marines were accompanied by teen hostesses from local high schools. This photo was taken at the first Marine Day, held March 23, 1968.
