Jewish Chess Players Get all the Hot Girls
Edward Winter gives, in Chess Notes 7076 and 7081, some excellent photographs of chess in Hollywood.
Of particular interest for Jewish chess history are the excellent quality photos of Fine, Reshevsky, Kashdan, Horowitz and others from Chess Review and Life magazine (given as links at the bottom of his post) with beautiful stars and starlets from Hollywood, taken during the 1945 Pan-American congress (see Winter's post for complete details about all the photos).
Above is one such photo, from Life, of Reuben Fine and Jane Nigh.
