I vote for Fanny, too.
I concur with JohnnyLovesRecords, Looks like Arlene to me!
Put me in the Arlene Camp.
That looks very much like Miss Francis in her "Studio D'Arlene" days (if you've read her book, you know exactly what I'm talking about)...the shoulders, the smile, the hair, and the profile.
well, i was close...panelist-wise that is. it is surely miss kazanjian.
I go with Fanny Brice but not even a clue. Great image though.
It sure looks like a madcap Miss Carlisle to me.
Why am I thinking Libby Holman or Gracie Allen?
first name that hit me was Joan Davis and the second was Fanny Brice Jon
i say Fanny Brice too.
Maybe Lily Pons?
I mentioned this photo on the "What's My Line" group I'm subbed to, and another member there agreed that this is Arlene, so another vote (by proxy, I suppose!) for her.
Im going with Kitty Carlisle....
Um, in keeping with many of the guesses, Bennett Cerf?
