Iconic Shot: The Four Kings of Hollywood

What's so funny?
In a shot that personifies Hollywood's "Golden Era," Slim Aarons, a prominent photographer of the day, caught Clark Gable, Van Heflin, Gary Cooper and James Stewart in a jovial moment during a New Year's party in 1957.  The picture was later dubbed "a Mount Rushmore of stardom" by Smithsonian magazine and "the very image of American he-men" by novelist Louis Auchincloss.

Who could possibly disagree?
