"A Society Directory for names, addresses and telephone numbers / Names of Leading Clubs and Their Officers." Includes Brentwood Heights, San Fernando Valley, Santa Monica, Palm Springs, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Long Beach, Westwood, Glendale and Bel-Air. Bound in blue leather, some rub to edges, gilt titles considerably faded but still legible. Presumably we merely demonstrate that "society" remains a mystery to us, since -- while Mr. and Mrs. Walter Pidgeon and Mr. & Mrs. Basil Rathbone ARE listed -- we cannot find Jack Warner (though an Arthur Warner and a Linus Warner appear), nor Harry Cohn, nor Louis B. Mayer, nor Adolph Zukor. Is this because some of these gentlemen were Jewish, and thus not welcome at the important clubs? But then where are Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford? 392 pp. including an ad at rear for "Behymer Attractions" at the Philharmonic Auditorium, including Heifetz Jan. 23, Rachmaninoff Feb.2, Nelson Eddy Feb. 17, Horowitz Feb. 18, Marian Anderson Feb. 20 and 24, and Arthur Rubinstein April 1.
