Going Hollywood


On the Road with Marie

Jules and Marie at the 1934 World’s Fair in Chicago

They also spent plenty of time in Southern California, apparently living large at the Dessert Inn in 1937. Marie has obviously “Gone Hollywood!”

Socializing with the Stars

Fine Dining with the Stars

Julius and Marie at the Panama Golf Club, Panama City, for a luncheon in honor of Constance Bennett on February 13, 1933. Constance Bennett was a major Hollywood star during the 1920s and 1930s and for a time during the early 1930s, she was the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, as well as one of the most popular. 

The man nearest to the camera is Constance Bennett’s husband, Henri de la Falaise, a former spouse of Gloria Swanson.

It looks like Julius and Marie enjoyed several days of rubbing elbows with Hollywood’s elite.
