    Christmas Eve With the Webbs. It's Christmas Eve of 1933, Clifton Webb is starring on Broadway in As Thousands Cheer and the famous assemblage signing the guest book of Webb and his mother includes Leslie Howard, soon fated for such classic film roles as The Scarlet Pimpernel and Ashley Wilkes in Gone With the Wind. Howard is in very celebrated company - the page is actually headed "Noel's Christmas Party," and the Noel is Noel Coward, who has signed the sheet along with such major names as Laurence Olivier, Irving Berlin, Edna Ferber, Marilyn Miller. The back of the sheet is signed by Cole Porter. All that talent partying at Yuletide - can't you just hear them all caroling? Wonderful autographs, some very rare - including Leslie Howard, who died in 1943, shot down by the Luftwaffe over the Bay of Biscay. With COA from PSA/DNA.
