This float shows the first celebrity mayor of Palm Springs, Charles Farrell. He was a silent movie star who made the transition to "Talkies" and later starred in television as well. He has been called "The Brad Pitt of his day". One of his movies called "Seventh Heaven" won three Academy Awards and is the theme of this float. He also founded the Palm Springs Tennis Club. The woman in the black swimsuit was Gale Storm, his co-star in the 1950s TV series "My Little Margie".
