    Claire Luce

    Mayo Methot?

  3. Could be a very early attempt to glamorize Lucille Ball in the style of the day. Whether or not it is, she was so irrepressible that her individuality eventually emerged and she became the star she was destined to be around age forty.

    Well, my first guess is Gladys George, but I’m not sure. How about those eyebrows!

  5. dewey webb says:

    Suspect this is from the John Ford prison comedy (!), Up the River. If so, that means the kid is probably Joan Lawes, daughter of the warden of Sing Sing.

  6. Rogét-L.A. says:

    Helen Hayes?

  7. Dennis Aimino says:

    Louise Latimer?

  8. Bob Hansen says:

    Is it Helen Twelvetrees?

  9. Mike Hawks says:

    The lady is Clare Luce and the little girl with her in photo #2 is Joan Lawes from the 1930 film UP THE RIVER.

    Dorothy Revier?
