Time Travel to Old Hollywood

PostSat Feb 06, 2016 5:16 pm

Somebody suggested how neat it would be to time travel into the past. Agreed, but then where would we go if we could? I thought of Old Hollywood during the Golden Age. Of course, it would be even better if we brought along a modern digital camera so that's just what I did (in my imagination, I should hasten to point out). So here are a few of the celebrities I met up with. My biggest surprise was to realize that they were in color even if most of their films are b/w.

John Gilbert seemed to be thirsty:

Al Jolson thought I was his gofer and was assigned to him by Warner Bros. I explained that I actually came by to clean out Rin Tin Tin's Kennel:

I was invited to a formal dinner at San Simeon and found myself seated nect to John Barrymore:

The next day I wound up at a radio studio in the middle of various British actors who were rehearsing for a broadcast:

Back in formal attire, I spent a pleasant evening with Doug Fairbanks:

A highlight of my visit was meeting Clara Bow shipboard as we sailed up to Alaskan waters:

But my visit would have been in vain had I not meet up with George Arliss:
