    Jimmy Ferrara shared screen time with such Hollywood luminaries as Humphrey Bogart, Roy Rogers and “Wild” Bill Elliott, and counted Jane Russell and Rita Hayworth among his friends. In fact, Hayworth once snuck a bottle of bourbon into his jail cell after he got thrown in the brig for hitting an officer.

    Lou Costello, of the famous comedy duo Abbott and Costello, even paid for Jimmy's wedding when he married his first wife Kathleen, a dancer in the Ziegfeld Follies.

    "He was just one of the sweetest men in the whole wide world," Toni said.

    Only four years apart in age, she was very close to her brother.

    She remembers visiting him on his Nevada Ranch — the TWT which stood for Tomorrow Will Tell — where he raised quarter horses.

    One of the horses had just had a foal and she watched the young horse prance around.

    "I named it Misconduct," Toni said. "He used to always tell me I walked like a quarter horse. I never knew if that was an insult or a compliment."

    Jimmy was always very personable, too.
