Robert Mitchum busted

Robert Mitchum served 50 days in jail on a marijuana conviction, talks with attorney Jerry Geisler about his release in 1949.

Its no secret that actor Bob Mitchum was my friend. I knew the copper that busted Mitch . His name was Rudy Diaz, (far left ) and he was a real prick.

Rudy hung out at schwabs drug store before and after he retired.

Diaz worked the LAPD Vice squad and then Robbery Homicide. He retired during the early sixties and became a bit player in the movies. He had a pocked marked puss and I called him Pizza face every time i saw him. Mitchum gave the ugly prick a part in one of his movies. Go Figure
