Showpeople: Girls night out
Three girls about town and their pal [if not gay best friend] out having cocktails, in January 1959. I love this photo of Vivien Leigh, Kay Kendall, Lauren Bacall and Noel Coward - 4 quintessential showpeople - stepping out in '59. Kay died later that year, Bacall [the woman who knew everyone] is still with us, 50 years later, in her 80s. More on Kay later ...
