(Original Caption) 4/18/43-Catalina Island, California: Did you ever see a D.R.E.A.M. walking -- on a shore patrol? That's what Ava Gardner, M.G.M. starlet, is about to do. She is all dressed for a hike, to honor the Coast guardsmen stationed at Catalina Island training base who hailed her: "You're the D.R.E.A.M. we would like to walk with on our shore patrol."
