Stars and Cars

Paulette Goddard, getting into her husband’s (Charlie Chaplin) Rolls-Royce Phantom II, invites you to ride with the stars. Just to make things clear: today I didn’t browse through dozens of web pages and my own archive folders to prepare this column. Instead, I simply borrowed the stuff from an awesome thread of the friendly forum. Let’s go!

For strarters, some 20’s glamour:

Fatty Arbuckle and his 1919 Pierce Arrow

Harold Lloyd and wife Mildred Davis with their Buick

Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry aka Stepin Fetchit with his Cadillac Phaeton

Babe Ruth receiving a 1926 Auburn Roadster as a gift.

And now to 30s and 40s!
