    Note that while signing and smiling his cigarette is still burning between his fingers

    @ellen forsyth - I'm sure they probably got training in that by the studios :D

    I liked that girl's smile. But is he sweating under the arms?

    we can only see one, but I presume it is happening under both arms!!!....and i think that mark in the "under arm area" is from dampness.

    I'd rather spend the evening with the autograph huntress!

    Ah! but they weren't as phobic about under arm dampness as they are these days. Not sure but I don't think underarm pore sealant had been invented then.
