A publicity photo of Rose in his Tudor City penthouse made around 1939. The caption on the back reads
Rose and Holm lived together in the Tudor Tower penthouse as his divorce from Fanny Brice was being finalized, but didn't stay there long. After their marriage in 1939, they moved to fancier digs on Beekman Place.
They were both very well-known figures of that era, each landing on the cover of Time, then considered quite an achievement. Their contentious 1954 divorce (dubbed the "War of the Roses" by the press) was a subject of much idle chatter.
