Sam Goldwyn entertains visiting New York Mayor Jimmy Walker, c. 1928

Charlie is standing fourth from left, Sam Goldwyn second from left. Walker is in the middle & Ernst Lubitsch third from right. Douglas Fairbanks is in the foreground. Behind him, left to right: Lupe Velez, Dolores Del Rio, Louella Parsons & Marion Davies (except for Louella, Charlie has been linked romantically with all of these women. There are photos of him taking Lupe to a premiere around this time, he was involved in a long, sporadic affair with Marion, & may have had a sexual relationship with Dolores when she first came to Hollywood).

  1. How did he keep all the women straight?! He was also seeing Georgia Hale at this time right? His little black book must have been impressive...

  2. I'm sure it was, he was a rich, handsome bachelor.
    I don't think he started seeing Georgia on a regular basis until 1929.

  3. Is that Stan Laurel on Walker's left?
