Day By Day: 1936

Wednesday, July 22nd: Charlie and Paulette attend a reception honoring Johannes Poulsen, head of the Royal Theater Of Denmark. 

Host Mary Pickford introduced Poulsen to 200 celebrities and civic leaders on the lawn of her home, Pickfair. The Danish director was invited by the California Festival Association to stage an outdoor production of the play Everyman at the Hollywood Bowl that September.

In this grainy photo from the Los Angeles Times (7/23/36), you can see Charlie and Paulette to the right of Mary
