She's all starry-eyed. I would be, too, if that handsome fellow danced with me.

Are we a bit jealous?

The girl to the left looks like she wishes that she was dancing with Walter; and the guy on the right looks like he wishes that he WAS Walter.

Who is SHE?

Who cares about the guy in the uniform - who is the gal?

High School ?

of Evening in Paris.

Is that you, Marilyn?

His date looks a lot like a certain Miss Norma Jean Baker.

Wow, Walter was quite handsome!
Love having a link to one of the vintage Shorpy Photo Stars.
Nice tribute to one of our 'Greatest Generation'.
