Early '30's Movie Premiere Photos

Some pictures of Hollywood movie premieres of the early thirties, from the El Brendel blog. It appears that some of these photos were from the same premieres. A poster for Ann Harding's DEVOTION ( 1931 ) can be seen in the background of several pictures, and a poster for Maurice Chevalier's THE SMILING LIEUTENANT can be seen in some of the others. Some of the same flower arrangements can also be seen in more than one picture.

That could be the same poster in the background, but it isn't clear.

That looks like the same poster as in the previous picture.

Lubitsch was the director of THE SMILING LIEUTENANT, and the edge of a poster for that movie is visible in the background.
