The World's Greatest Entertainer & The Perfect Fool...

A seldom seen photo of two showbiz greats, Al Jolson and Ed Wynn, sharing a laugh at the Friars Club Testimonial for Ronald Reagan, April 2, 1950. Six months later, after returning from entertaining our troops in Korea, Jolie died.

  1. Wynn appears to be wearing a Mason's pin; any idea what Jolie is wearing on his lapel? Great picture, would love to add it to my collection!
