In the early 1950s, Smiley Burnette came to Burnham Drive-in Theater in Burnham, Pennsylvania, and children were photographed with him. My mother refused to buy my photo. Are there any negatives/photos in a collection?

When these movie stars went on tour and posed for photographs with fans, the photos were sold by the photographer, who shared proceeds with the star. Photos that were unsold at the end of the session were tossed. I’m afraid your souvenir is long gone.
