Original Caption:

Beverly Hills -- A couple of "old timers", George Raft and Mae West, interrupt their talk about Hollywood to accommodate photographers at a gala 'Cocktails for Two' party, June 28. Movie, television, and recording stars joined business leaders in a return to the 1930's party hosted by Schenley Industries to introduce a new pre-mixed drink. Freddie Martin and Bob Crosby orchestras provided the music for the nostalgic extravaganza. (1977)

Amazingly, Raft and West died almost the same day. Mae on nov 22, 1980. George two days later, on nov 26, 1980.

I remember the "Cocktails for Two" pre-mixed drinks. They were absolutely God-awful!
