He certainly is darling, I bet he was adorable as a youngster and would make a great Santa impersonator.
Great photo!  Proof that fashion is cyclical.

This is one of my favorite pictures. I love the black and white contrast. Mr. Phelps beard has been well tended to.

Everything about this pictures screams black and white, even if it was in color. My grandmother had white hair - not gray, and I imagine that Mr. Phelps also had white hair.

His eyes look black as two coals.

Wearing a very white shirt underneath a black suit.

He is fooling no one though.

Through those closed lips could come the heartiest laugh you ever heard.

Why - on Christmas, you would see him in quite a different color - imagine red and white?
