Husband and wife Benn Levy and Constance Cummings, dressed in Gay Nineties somethingorothers, arrive at a Darryl Zanuck-hosted soiree on their tandem. Levy, a playwright and British parliamentarian, is in the rear, of course. Cummings, the American-born British actress, is upfront. The fete in question is to celebrate the 1933 release of The Bowery, a Lower East Side-in-the-1890s comedy starring Wallace Beery, George Raft and Fay Wray.
Here’s the snipe: “HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. As an impetus to their first production, ‘The Bowery,’ Darryl Zanuck, head of Twentieth Century Motion Picture Productions and William Goetz, his associate, gave a party, here, with the fabulous bowery of New York in the ’90s as their theme. Many of the celebrities attended in hilarious costume. In the photo, Constance Cummings, right, and her husband, Benn Levy, British playwright. 10/10/33”
