This incredible scroll , 42” by19”, was signed by all the stars who frequented Ciro’s Nightclub on Sunset Blvd in the 1940 and 50s.
It’s fun to spot all the signatures, over 95 stars.
The scroll was auctioned in 2014 by Heritage Auctions, but I don’t know how much it sold for.
Ciro’s opened at 8433 Sunset Blvd. in 1940 by Billy Wilkerson who also ran the Hollywood Reporter. The club ran till 1957.
There’s a book, CIRO’S :NIGHTCLUB OF THE STARS which is full of photos.
Apparently the space for dancing was quite small.
Wonder what Orson is saying to make Ida give him that look!
