Description Photographic image of actor Sal Mineo ("Rebel Without a Cause," "Giant," "Planet of the Apes"), either boarding or departing a Delta aircraft at Lovell Field in Chattanooga in 1957. The newspapers apparently had his arrival on front pages, noting that the appearance of 18-year-old movie star Sal Mineo in Chattanooga was so overwhelming that eight teen-age girls fainted and had to be hospitalized. The man behind the boy in a striped shirt is likely Jay Solomon, the father of Linda Solomon Wood and Joel Solomon.
