I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

Any idea who this flexible chap is?

That's Herb Fields, book writer of Panama Hattie...not to mention A Connecticut Yankee, Du Barry Was a Lady, Mexican Hayride, Redhead, Pardon My English & Annie Get Your Gun.

His sister Dorothy was also a Broadway librettist and a fabulous lyricist ("The Way You Look Tonight,"I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby", "Pick Yourself Up").
