Parts of it made me wonder if it could be photoshopped but everything I've found leads me to believe this is real, including this;

I still think the Oscar statues are fake.

This is pretty cool too

That is an amazing photo! I can't believe all those big stars sat for one group photo. I wonder how many weeks of negotiations went on with who got to sit where.

Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed are a couple rows apart. Less than 3 years later they did "It's a Wonderful Life" for RKO and Liberty Films.

I think that was a Life magazine photo. It's always been one of my favorites!

"Friday the 13th" was filmed in New Jersey. The fictional Camp Crystal Lake is in real life, Camp NoBeBoSco, an actual Boy Scouts camp.
