Surfing has been a way life for Bethany since she was able to get on a board.
Coming back from her attack, she found solid success in surfing competition, but now truly looks to make her mark as a professional surfer in the free surfing arena (chasing waves, getting photos/videos published, and “Living The Search”).
His first film role was a lead, Crime and Punishment U. Hamilton wanted to do more serious material, however, so he appeared in the lower budgeted Angel Baby (1961), a drama about an evangelist, for Allied Artists. For United Artists he supported Lana Turner in a melodrama, By Love Possessed (1961).
MGM tried to change his image by putting him in a Western, A Thunder of Drums (1961) alongside Richard Boone; the film was mildly popular.
Hamilton lobbied hard for the role of the Italian husband in Light in the Piazza (1962), another melodrama, with Olivia de Havilland.
