Continuing our investigation today, we move along to the gentlemen that Dominick Dunne touches upon in his April 1986 Vanity Fair 1986 investigation. There is a lot of unpack in this one! Douglas Fairbanks Jr. becomes a real celebrity around the island in his home, The Vicarage – not to be outdone by Paul Ilyensky, with his many connections into the high society scene. We conclude with a dive into Arndt Krupp sailing us through this leg of our journey with our man Nick, attempting to discover the real Palm Beach.
