This week’s mystery guest has 125 credits on imdb.

Update: Steven Bibb and Gregory Moore have correctly identified our mystery star. I’m going to defer revealing her name to give other readers a chance. Congrats, Steven and Gregory!

And today’s photo shows our mystery guest with another mystery woman, who has more than 130 credits on imdb. (Sorry, Louise Brooks has 26 credits on imdb. Our mystery guest was a mystery even to me, apparently!)

Add Alexa Foreman and Herb Nichols to the people who have identified *one* of our mystery women.

And yes, this is Evelyn Brent and Louise Brooks from "King of Gamblers." (Brooks’ scenes were evidently deleted).

And finally, a clip of her with Maurice Chevalier and a still from one of her movies, "The Law West of Tombstone." She is Evelyn Brent.
