Some of these actors and actresses met him later in the evening of June 1st, when Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford invited Baba to Pickfair, their twenty-two-room mansion at 1143 Summit Drive, for a reception with a few others from the film industry. Marc Jones drove Baba, Meredith ( Starr ), Margaret, Priscilla and ( Quentin ) Tod to Beverly Hills at eight o'clock that night. The mandali followed in another car, along with Norina ( Matchabelli ) and Elizabeth ( Patterson ).
