    Fred and Adele Astaire Attend a Cocktail Party With Louise Brooks. From their film debut in 1917 until she married the British Lord Charles Cavendish in 1931, Fred Astaire and his sister Adele were a double act. They appeared in all the Broadway stage hits together and were often seen at "A" list parties such as this one. This lot consists of a sheet of fine laid paper on which the attendees of Clifton Webb's cocktail party of Sunday, January 26, 1930, signed their names. Besides the Astaires and the dark-haired beauty Louise Brooks, other signers include Marilyn Miller, Ruth Donnelly and the great female author Edna Ferber. In very good condition with some mild toning and edge wear. With COA from PSA/DNA.
