    Clifton Webb and a Few Famous Friends Celebrate the End of WWII. Numerous well-known personalities signed this page from Webb's Guest Book dated August 12, 1945 and headed "Practically V-J-Day." What a party this must have been with attendees that included: Ethel Barrymore, Otto Preminger, George Cukor, George Schlee, Katharine Hepburn, Ian MacDonald, and Marlene Dietrich. Among the others that were there were a couple most of us have heard of: Orson Welles and his second wife, Rita Hayworth Welles. Hayworth once said of Welles, "...a most brilliant auteur and lover. I just wish he hadn't become so fat. It affected his performance in movies and the bedroom." August 12th was the day that the United States accepted the Japanese surrender- the formal ceremonies would take place on September 2, 1945 aboard the U.S.S. Missouri. In very good condition with very little toning or wear. With COA from PSA/DNA.
