WWII fighter ace Larry ‘Happy’ Powell flew 68 missions over Europe in his P-51 fighter.
After crashing and spending time as a POW in Germany, Larry returned to his home city of Los Angeles for a dual career in the Air National Guard and as an assistant director in Hollywood.
After surviving another plane crash that left over 60% of his body badly burned, he went on to work on numerous Hollywood classics that included Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Right Stuff.
In Happy, Larry shares some gripping stories from WWII and Hollywood sets, and leaves us with his unique outlook on life.
