Ginger Rogers and Harold Lloyd share a kiss at the Shrine Flood Relief Benefit in Hollywood, February, 1937.

"Harold Lloyd, high in Shrine circles, not only acted as star contact officer in securing Hollywood talent, but when Ginger Rogers auctioned off a doll, and the auctioneer indicated that a kiss from the titian-topped dancing star would be thrown in for good measure, the bespectacled comic from a top gallery bid  $400 and then thrilled an audience of 8.000 by coming down on the stage, handing over the money for the doll, and claiming then and there his osculatory bonus. Incidentally, Harold out bid Cary Grant, Ginger’s escort, by $50, and wiseacres wondered what Jimmy Stewart, Ginger’s steady of the moment, would say when he heard about the carryin’s on." - Hamm Beall, Hollywood magazine, April 1937.
