  1. This is very cute. I couldn't believe my eyes when I read El Centro, California. I knew that famous people used to stay at the Barbara Worth Hotel, but I never expected to see a movie star fashion show connected with my hometown.
    I'm enjoying your blog after a long absence.

  2. You must be a vintage video whisperer. How do you find some of these? Once again- a lovely video. Thanks!
