These photographs, which Dunne carefully preserved in more than a dozen leatherbound scrapbooks-along with invitations, telegrams, personal notes, and other memorabilia-record the parties, the glittering receiptions, the society weddings, and scenes from the everyday lives of the Dunnes and those they knew, including Jan Fonda, Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, Roddy McDowall, Elizabeth Taylor, Natalie Wood, Brooke Hayward, Jennifer Jones, and David Selznick.
