Re: as seen on the other Louise Brooks sites
- Thank you, Olive. My pen-pal, Diana Serra Cary, the former "Baby
Peggy", will be there this coming weekend, to present one of famous
films, CAPTAIN JANUARY(1924). I called her the other day and asked
her for some photographs of the Castro Theater. She told me that she
would and that she would be wearing a black dress, to go with the
gold curtain of the theater.
