    At Acapulco, a lavish dinner party attracts a wide variety of celebrities, including Lynda Bird Johnson and her actor friend George Hamilton. 
    Film star John Wayne enjoys the festivities, while Mexican movie actress Dolores Del Rio and her husband are also among the famous guests. 
    Lynda and George refuse to comment on specuation about a future wedding, while they spent the gay evening as almost constant dancing partners. 
    A request to have the press barred from the party was refused. Hamilton changed partners only to dance with their hostess, former film star Merle Oberon.
