Title   The Cobina Wright Dinner

Book Condition   Very Good Plus

Publisher   Beverly Hills 1964

Seller ID   003207

Bound folio containing many full page testimonials and photos of a who's who from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Most of the celebrities were past their movie making prime but many a comfortable late middle age and still attractive, if not exactly young, and perhaps with the discreet, or not-so-discreet, help of a surgeon's knife. Among this contingent of "Hollywood Royalty" are Greer Garson, Irene Dunne, Mae West, Sonja Henie, Bob Hope, Bob Cummings, Merle Oberon. More youthful, but soon to achieve similar status, were Kim Novak, Zsa Zsa, George Hamilton, Arlene Dahl, Rhonda Fleming, Jerry Lewis, Rod Taylor, and on and on. Add to the mix prominent producers (Ray Stark, etc.), the "hostess with the mostess" Perle Mesta, the comely wives of deceased movie people, and non-entertainment industry high society, and the Cobina being honored surely must have enjoyed the crowning accolade of her career. Personally making a tribute to her that evening was none other than Mary Pickford, and the entertainment included Red Skelton and Johnny Mathis. Cobina, now no longer famous, had had a brief movie and singing career before she entered that rarefied sorority of entertainment gossip columnists, from which the outpouring of love towards her could not have been less spontaneous than spontaneous combustion, And if there is any doubt as to the sincerity of the tributes, the inclusion of rival Louella Parsons should put such skepticism. The production of the folio is itself a tribute, with a number of the over hundred leaves featuring a metallic patina. And while the autographed inscriptions are virtually all copies, the brochure does have a genuine inked inscription by Cobina herself. Bound with a plastic spiral. Measures 28 by 22 cm.
