American royalty passedthrough Midway in an era when piston engines meant that aircraft had to refuel between coasts.
When Hollywood Landed at Chicago's Midway Airport

The flash of his camera sent Al Capone diving to the floor. He was asked to escort Bob Hope's wife to church and to hide John Barrymore from his mistress. Cary Grant demanded a shoeshine, Eleanor Roosevelt demanded an apology, and Harry Truman demanded a bourbon. Photographer Mike Rotunno was the man on the scene when Chicago's Midway Airport was the crossroads of the world and people walked its concourse just to catch a glimpse of Hollywood's brightest starts. An interesting history and story left behind in 50 years of photographs and journals.9781609495923
