Hearst Party at Marion Davies Beach House
The media folks turned out to celebrate Hearst Magazines last evening at the original beach house of early film star Marion Davies built for her by WR Hearst on Santa Monica Beach. Actually the original main house(pictured left) is no longer standing and this was actually the "guest cottage." What a great evening celebrating the lavish parties that where once the hot invitation in Hollywood with Cary Grant and Joan Crawford pictured with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as memories of those spectacular parties. I was present with my daughter Meg Ruggiero Ovikian; it was one of those perfect evenings at the ocean. Memorable. Thank you all at Hearst for a grand evening.
