March 1961. Joan Crawford et al.

This group looks decadent as hell. (Joan Crawford with artist Piero Aversa, left, and art dealer Walstein Findlay.) I can definitely see the Youth Revolution coming in response to this kind of early-60s generic, stagnant scene. (A "revolution" that would, in itself, turn far more creepy and destructive than the mere cheesiness of early 60s entertainment.)

Still, I'm hardly ever depressed by anything Joan Crawford. There's usually some sort of psychic energy there. Here, her time is about to be past after 30 years, yet... she's still, at nearly 60, completely ON.
