Years with a $16,000 Party." Life Magazine, vol. 38, no. 10, pp

party (it had an "Oriental" theme as well as events from the evening.
Guests included Vera Ellen, Victor Rothschild, and Terry Moore.

I was unable to locate this article for you but I have some emails in
circulation and I might receive a response from you.

In the meantime, if you remember the cover, perhaps you can find it by
looking through the 1955 Life Magazine covers. If not, hopefully
another researcher will be able to better assist you.

Hello again,

I posted too soon by mistake.

"Receive a response from you" should read: Receive a response for you.

I also wanted to include this link:,12810,,00.html?keywords=&thedate=%2A%2A%2A%2A55&last_result=14&this_page=2

All the best,

Tisme and Crookham --

Interestingly enough it DOESN'T appear in the index to the Reader's
Guide to Periodical Literature, a print index, during that period.
