Actress Helen Jerome Eddy flew to Los Angeles from her home in Santa Barbara. She was met at the airport by Herbert Vatcher, superintendent of the Cawston Ostrich Farm and his son Herbert Vatcher Jr.
Eddy began her acting career during the silent film era and appeared in such films as Strike Up the Band and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
Later in the day, Eddy assists the Ambassador Hotel’s master chef in making a giant omelet with an ostrich egg from the Cawston Ostrich Farm. The publicity stunt involves cracking open the enormous egg using a large two-headed hammer.
