Ray Bolger and Eleanor Powell

Photo Details

Before he was the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz (1939), Ray Bolger appeared in "Rosalie" with Eleanor Powell. Eleanor is seen kissing the cheek of Senator George L. Radcliffe of Maryland. Senator Radcliffe has a big grin on his face. notice the look on Ray Bolger's face - he doesn't look happy! But there are "lookieloos" on the building behind them (on the right, laughing and joking).

Both Eleanor Powell and Ray Bolger were singers and dancers. They were in Washington DC to entertain at one of President Roosevelt's "many" birthday parties.
