Friends and family of Claude Jarman, Jr. recently celebrated the Academy Award-winning actor’s 75th birthday with a fun showing of “The Claude Jarman, Jr. Story” at the Lark Theater in Larkspur, California. Directed by wife Katie, it featured clips from his movie career, and touched upon some highlights of his life, including his time in the Navy, his involvement with the San Francisco Film Festival, Shaklee, and Jarman Travel, Inc.
