I can make out Jack Benny and Ginger Rogers. Who else can be spotted?

J.C. Loophole said...

That looks like Jack Benny in the very front row in his glasses- perhaps that is who he is reacting to?

Dino was the greatest vocalist of all time, of all genres.

Mike said...

Sid Caesar (bottom right), Debbie Reynolds (below Sid, right of Ginger),Hugh Hefner (with pipe left of Benny), that might be Lucile Ball half obscured by Benny's head. The couple to Hefner's left seem familiar. I dunno, she might be Claire Boothe Luce.

Mike said...

Actually, that might be Shelley Berman instead of Hefner. These pixels are hard io interpret!

Debbie Reynolds is in there, too.

I seem to remember seeing this image, and a bunch of other similar ones, at an archive site at UNLV, only now I can't find the site any more.

Slightly bigger version here.

Kinda looks like Jack Warner (very tan) near the corner of the stage.

Lucy AND Desi behind Jack Benny

Brooks said...

If that's Hefner he is capable of time travel. He wouldn't have had gray temples when Debbie Reynolds was that young.

The woman to the left of "Hef" looks a little like Dina Shore.

I think I see Aldous Huxley, Aleister Crowley, Lenny Bruce... oh wait... that's Sgt. Pepper's.

Will Divide said...

Looks like Dino is doing a Benny hand-to-face take while Jack plays along. Great shot.
