Edwin Edwards and my Father-in-Law!

In 1977, Governor Edwin Edwards presided over a huge Mardi Gras celebration in Beverly Hills, California. He is pictured with well-known actress Gloria Swanson who served as queen of the Mardi Gras. The king, on the right, is my father-in-law, Teddy Solomon. TG, as he is known by all his friends, was a major presence in the movie theater business, both in the south as well as Hollywood. All in the picture passed away, and I sure wish they were still here to entertain us all.
