    Shooting Stars

    The Photographers Ball began as a Halloween costume party for the benefit of the needy camera boys. Now, five years later, it’s one of the most spectacular yearly parties in town. Esther Williams and her party of ten raided the studio wardrobe so they could dress alike. The gilded Oscars brought along quarts of alcohol in case thay had to remove the paint. One thing you can count on at the Hollywood Press Photographers Ball—it always has the same ending—some time in the wee hours of the morning!
