Gino Dercola and Tracy Tolzmann have attached a photo of Rand Brooks, Jr. with his famous grandfather, Stan Laurel. Rand's father, Rand Brooks, Sr., was an actor whose roles included among many, the first husband of Scarlett O'Hara in GONE WITH THE WIND, and Bing Crosby's future brother-in-law in Frank Capra's RIDING HIGH, which featured Oliver Hardy in a special cameo appearance.
