• Short Summary

    Film stars galore at the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood.

  • Description

    Titles read: "STARS AMONG STARS" (Dublin issue).

    Hollywood, California, United States of America.

    At the annual dinner of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (aka the Oscars ceremony), we see various shots film stars sitting at tables: (unidentified woman - could be Irene Dunne?) Jack Benny with wife Mary Livingstone, Norma Shearer, Myrna Loy with producer David O Selznick, could be Cecil B De Mille (?), James Stewart, Cary Grant with Rosalind Russell, Loretta Young, Olivia De Havilland.

    M/S of Oscar winners Gary Cooper (Best Actor in 'Sergeant York'), Joan Fontaine (Best Actress for 'Suspicion'), Mary Astor (Best Supporting Actress in 'The Great Lie') and Donald Crisp (Best Supporting Actor in 'How Green Was My Valley') posing with their awards. Nice M/S of Joan Fontaine and Gary Cooper looking at each other, laughing and holding their Oscar statuettes.

    Note: if anyone knows who the lady is in shot before Jack Benny, please let us know (looks a little like Loretta Young, who appears later in story).
