First Annual Actors' Equity Carnival Program 1929


This is an original souvenir program  from the "Actors Equity Association First Annual Actor's Equity Carnival".   The event was held at The Edgewater Gables, Santa Monica,  on August 3, 1929.

There are great photos of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Thelma Todd, Chester Conklin, Mae Murray, Ben Lyon, Marilyn Miller, George Arliss, Helen Ware, Henry B. Walthall, Mary Eaton, Claude Gillingwater, Charlotte Greenwood, John Bower, Marguerite De La Motte, James Kirkwood, Beatrice Lillie, Reginald Denny, Laura La Plante, Raymond Griffith, Bessie Love, Pauline Frederick, Richard Barthelmess, George Fawcett, The Gleasons and Rex, Francis X. Bushman, Madge Bellamy, Alan Hale, Catherine Dale Owen, Dennis King, Jeanette MacDonald, Alden Gay, Kenneth Thomson, Antonio Moreno, Hoot Gibson, Maude Fulton, Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey, Virginia Valli, John Boles, Warner Oland, Joseph Cawthorn, Otto Matiesen, Marion Harris, Neil Hamilton, Evelyn Hall, Claude King, Tom Dugan, Lowell Sherman, Bessie Barriscale, Mitchell Lewis, Robert McWade, Vivienne Segal, Monte Blue, Eddie Quillan, Richard "Skeet" Gallagher, Carmelita Geraghty, Sam de Grasse, Billy Dooley, Eugene O'Brien, Mack Swain, Frank Reicher, Billie Dove, Lilyan Tashman, Edmund Lowe, Jeanne Kent, Robert Armstrong, Claude Gillingwater, Jr.,Sylvia Field, Eddie Gribbon, Stuart Holmes, and Hedwiga Reicher. Other stars took out small ads with no photo..these include such names as Buster Keaton, Charley Chase, Max Davidson, and Lina Basquette.

The back cover is an ad for "The Voice Of The Screen" Casting Directory so I imagine they are the ones that supplied all the great photos in this book.

It measures 8 3/4" x 11 1/4" inches and  has 112 pages.
