From Hollywood to the Joint Chiefs

Admiral Michael Mullen, President Bush's nominee to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has an interesting family background.

Mullen's father, Jack, was a Hollywood press agent who started working in the publicity department at Republic Pictures in the '40s. Early in his career Jack went on the road with clients such as Gene Autry and the Sons of the Pioneers; eventually his client list included Julie Andrews, Ann-Margret, and Anthony Quinn.

Jack Mullen died at age 54 in 1972.
