An Evening with Bob Baker
Bob Baker has lived a Hollywood life. He grew up here, graduating from Hollywood High School in 1939, creating hundreds of marionette shows for Hollywood's celebrities for decades of birthday parties and events, being an animator for George Pal's Oscar-winning Puppetoons in the 1940s, working on A Star is Born with Judy Garland, and GI Blues with Elvis, plus aliens on Close Encounters of the Third Kind , and more. He was brought in by Walt Disney to create the animated window displays on Disneyland's Main Street, which he did for decades and continues to make official Disney marionettes. His Bob Baker Marionette Theater opened in 1962 and is the only full time operating puppet theater in the U.S. Using film clips and the actual puppets will help Bob tell his stories of the rich, famous, and colorful, from Walt Disney to Spielberg, to Getty, to Elvis, to Garland, and many more.
