Debauchery proliferated in Hollywood at that time, fueled by riotous boozing and self-indulgence amongst Cary's peers. "There was a gusto unmatched before or since," writes historian James "Jim" Baccus. Hollywood allowed the leisured classes to fulfill their carnal fantasies without restraint. And perhaps the most striking feature in Cary's life was the assortment of rakes, libertines, and cads that milled about. There were ribald toasts, poring over the latest racy books, and visits from comely young "posture molls," who posed nude on tables and sprayed lavish perfumes into the air whilst screaming "Onward and upward!" Alas, I speak of a time long gone. One can only wonder at the debauchery experienced. One does wonder how could someone who experienced all this still look so dashing and elegant in perfectly cut suits? Hmmmm, indeed.
