LITTLE-KNOWN FACTS

Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan were originally cast for the roles that went to Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca.

In 1940 Reagan was voted by the University of Southern California's Division of Fine Arts as having "the most nearly perfect male figure."

In the 1950s Reagan was $18,000 in debt. He owed the government money, and he had mortgages on both his Pacific Palisades house and his ranch in the Malibu hills. He turned his finances over to his friend, William French Smith, and his problems were finally solved when 20th Century--Fox bought the ranch for $2 million.

The greatest disappointment of Reagan's acting career came in 1970, when he was California governor: No one thought to offer him the starring role in Patton.
