Looks like Tallulah Garbo! But I think it's Greta.
J Edgar Hoover is my guess
Laurence Olivier - Richard III?
It reminds me of Tallulah playing Chanel but my guess is the "lovely" Pola Negri on "The Moon-Spinners".
Hello ! Something about Gloria Swanson comes in my mind ... I am not very sure ...
Wallis Simpson (or Hedy Lamarr in The Wallis Simpson Story?)
I saw a flash of Patricia Neal at first too. But ultimately I've gotta say, put me in the Swanson camp.
Jack Lemmon? Gene Kelly? Mama Rose?
I'm definitely going with Pola Negri.
early early Helena Rubenstein pre chignon days - - - -
Perhaps Mrs. Vincent Price-Coral Browne?
Its polish actress Pola Negri.From 1935-1938 she played in german films. After 1938 you can see her in two US-Films. 1943 she plays in "Hi diddle diddle".
Looks like Eve Arden to me. But why the wig?
They are all such good guesses...I can see almost everyone mentioned, even if I didn't see it at first...But this is my third visit, and I have to guess, Pola...(that is a tiny nose)
