Ronald Reagan in the Enchanted Kingdom
On July 17th, 1955, Ronald Reagan hosted live coast-to-coast TV coverage of the opening day at Disneyland. He was 44. He'd spent his early career as a movie actor, playing attractive boyfriends and amiable sidekicks, but had recently begun earning an even better living as the amiable and attractive spokesmodel for corporations like General Electric. Ronald Reagan appears five times in A Book of Ages.
