historic handshake

Carol Grace Marcus & Oona O'Neill went to boarding school together.

Marcus married playwright William Saroyan in 1943 & gave birth later that year to future poet Aram Saroyan. she was one of many who claimd to be the model for Capote's Holly Golighty. she met Walter Matthau while they were appearing in a Broadway play together. they were later married.

her classmate & friend was the daughter of playwright Eugene O'Neill. she married Charlie Chaplin. among their children was actress Geraldine Chaplin.

in Beverly Hills in 1990 I took this photo of Geraldine's reunion with her mother's dear friend.
