Al Jolsen, John Drew, and President Coolidge

Photo Details

Al Jolson, John Drew, and President Coolidge with Mrs Coolidge and some other prominent actors.

John Drew Jr was the uncle of John, Ethel, and Lionel Barrymore and the great-great uncle of Drew Barrymore. He was a Shakespearean stage actor.

Al Jolson was a singer, actor, and comedian best known for being in the first full length "talkie" (talking motion picture), The Jazz Singer.

President Calvin Coolidge was the 30th President of the United States. His wife was Grace Anna Goodhue Coolidge.

I don't recognize the other actors but perhaps Mary Pickford on the right?
