When the current owner was a teenager back in 1958, she and a girlfriend snuck into the Pantages Theatre and hid in the women's restroom, hoping to crash the awards ceremony. They took programs that had been left in the bathroom by others, then ventured out into the lobby where they started asking the stars for their autographs. Pretty quickly, a security guard caught on to the duo and booted them out, but not before our consignor obtained signatures from the above actors while her girlfriend hit up other stars to sign her program.
