Jane Wyman (1917-2007) was an acclaimed actress who is also the only person in history to be the ex-wife of an American president, having been married for eight years to Ronald Reagan, with whom she had three children (they divorced in 1948 before he started her acting career). She was one of the finest actresses of her generation, receiving four Academy Award nominations and winning one for Johnny Belinda in 1948. She was re-introduced to a new generation of fans through her 1981-1990 evening soap opera Falcon Crest, in which she played the lead.
Here she is seen at the 1950 Los Angeles Sportsmen's Show getting a casting tip from Stanley Wright of Denver's Wright & McGill. She was testing out the company's new Fre-Line reel.
