One of these days it WILL be Helen Twelvetrees, but I'll say Clara Bow this time...
I know, I know! She's a birthday girl, 109 years young today. Within a couple of years of this lamentable snap, she cleaned up real good...
and SO apropos for yontif!
no clue but great pic!
I was thinking Ruth Gordon, but the spector of Theda Bara looms large, but not so large that I'm giving up on Ruth Gordon.
The more I look at this picture the more I disagree with my guess of Ruth Gordon and the more I agree with MC that it's a very young Mae West.
I'll say a very young Marlene Dietrich ......
