Don't really know, but she looks very much like Gertrude Michael, the "Marihuana" lover.
My first thought was Joan Davis.
Can't decide between Lily Pons and Joan Davis - -
Im going to say Marion Davies...
Gertrude Lawrence aka Star!
I don't know, but she looks EXACTLY like Cate Blanchett!
Is it Arlene Francis?
ditto Labuanbajo: Joan Davis
That face looks so familiar it's driving me crazy! My very first thought was Gertrude Lawrence. Then I thought, if it isn't Gertrude Lawrence, then it might be Hildegarde Neff? Just guessing.
I have consulted my friend, the film historian Farnham Scott, and we believe that this is the great blacklisted Karen Morely.
Can't recall the name, but wasn't she the gal whowent off the rails in Shangrila? Lost Horizon I mean.
