  1. So cool! What wouldn't I give to crash one of those parties!

  2. Love the photo of Chaplin as Napoleon. Brilliant!

  3. These pictures are absolutely amazing! I was just at a photo exhibit in an event space Chicago has and it was about old Hollywood starts and their private lives. Old photographs are so iconic. You can’t help but star. Thanks for sharing these!
