". . and leaning over the cradle of Miss Daphne Fairbanks (whose father remarked with that loving originality peculiar to all infatuated fathers that while he didn't know much about babies he did know she was the most beautiful child he had ever seen) was that handsome young man who doesn't, but who could, call himself Douglas Fairbanks, II . . . just behind this father of Daphne's stood her very young step-grandfather, Mr. Jack Whiting, the musical comedy star, together with the baby's adoring grandmothers, the very social Mrs. Epling and the very charming Mrs. Beth Sully Fairbanks Whiting."
A pair of very handsome young people flew West from Boston to San Francisco recently . . . their names were Mr. and Mrs. Tyrone Power . . . (if they had wanted to be very society about it they could, quite accurately, have signed their names Mr. and Mrs. Tyrone Power, III)
Constance Bennett seems to have had a bit of a beauty empire. Today it seems like every celebrity has a beauty line, from Drew Barrymore's Flower Beauty to what seems like the millionth Britney Spears or J.Lo perfume, celebrities have been in the beauty products game from the beginning. The footage of Constance using her products survives and is incredibly intriguing. Unfortunately it appears to be one of the sole surviving remnants. Bennett's beauty empire lasted approximately a decade - an amazing feat since she began her empire during the Great Depression. According to the author of The Bennetts, Constance was great at coming up with ideas, but terrible at implementation. At one point she franchised the product. The company apparently did a horrible job and ruined the brand's reputation. Constance and Co. re branded, but was unable to recover from it.
