Vince Keenan posted this link to rara-avis but he hasn't put it on his blog yet. (Or I missed it.) So I'll steal it for mine. Video is at the link, and it's very cool. It'll make you want to run out and buy Vanity Fair.

Update: Todd Mason likes this link better. Check 'em both out.

Actually, the B-roll option, featuring the preparations for the still photos, loses the corny narration and gives us some motion pictures of some of my favorite people to look at (even if entirely too many men get in the way)...and the soundtrack music is at least as good:
