Amazing Photos of Fearless Fagan in 1951 – The Incredible Lion Who Became a Hollywood Star (11 Pics)

Fearless the Lion was owned by Floyd C. Humeston, who raised Fagan from a cub, brushed its teeth, combed its fur and, LIFE claimed, had “evolved an English-German gibberish that Fagan not only understands but answers with growls and gurgles which his master understands.”
