Both cars in the arrivals line are two door cars. It looks like the people arriving drove their own cars and valets took the cars to be parked. That is quite different from recent times where people get driven to the awards and dropped off.

A bit of context.
The 26th awards were in 1952.
Best picture was Greatest Show on Earth, Gary Cooper won Best Actor for High Noon.
Best director was John Ford for The Quiet Man, Shirley Booth (Hazel to us children of the 60s) won best actress for Come Back, Little Sheba.

Remembering the 60's.
I loved Shirley Booth as Hazel, but I really loved Imogene Coca as "Grindl"
Just a late night thought.
