Here’s another photo of our mystery lady.

Please congratulate Megan, Roget-L.A. and Mary Mallory for identifying our mystery gal. And a special congratulations to Benito, who identified her and asked “Again?” Benito, truly, you are a loyal Daily Mirror reader!

These comments are certainly gratifying and show the loyalty of Daily Mirror readers because, yes, this is Patricia Morison and she was a mystery lady in the old version of the blog in October 2010.  Congratulations to Jenny M., Periwinkle, Dewey Webb, Don Danard, Bob Hansen and Rick Scott.

  1. Is that the lovely Joan Bennett? Or some other lovely?


  2. Eve says:

    Nope, not a clue. Taken ca. 1940-45, though, I will wager. And a very scratchy-looking frock.


  3. Megan says:

    I believe that’s Patricia Morison.


  4. Gary Martin says:

    For day one of the mystery foto contest I will suggest the obvious: Joan Bennett’s sister Barbara Bennett. Of course this will all change on day two.


  5. Pamela Porter says:

    Margaret Lockwood? Probably not, but she’s my Bennett-esque choice.


  6. mary mallory says:

    Jinx Falkenburg?


  7. Chad says:

    I first thought Joan Bennett too, I’m a Fritz Lang fan. (the Walter Pidgeon references brought me here) The chin looks similar to Joan, but the lips look a bit different. Could be the lipstick. Then I thought Deanna Durbin, although not. Her face was more square. Then I thought Hedy Lamarr. This looks like the closest match to me so far, although I am not convinced. Her facial features seem to be the closest to Hedy, but maybe a bit more rounded – although that might just be the effects of different makeup. It looks like Hedy usually had a part line running down the middle of her hair in most of the pics I could find. This pic I can’t tell as it is not a head-on shot. I don’t see it though.


  8. Ed says:

    I would say it is Joan Bennett


  9. Rotter says:

    Renee Godfrey.


  10. Rogét-L.A. says:

    Patricia Morison?


  11. CraigDeco says:

    A good friend’s(former)Scarsdale,N.Y. neighbor- the fabulous Joan Bennett.


  12. mary mallory says:

    Patricia Morrison.


  13. Wm. Stansel says:

    Gail Russell


  14. Rinky Dink says:

    Jean Tierney?


  15. Gregory Moore says:

    Possibly a very young Yvonne deCarlo?


  16. Benito says:

    Patricia Morison again? I’m guessing the forties, anyway.


  17. Jenny M says:

    Patricia Morrison


  18. periwinkle says:

    How about Patricia Morison? It’s the turban.


  19. dewey webb says:

    The return of Patricia Morison


  20. Rogét-L.A. says:

    I was hesitant to guess Patricia Morison because I, too, thought that this was not the first time we had had her as the mystery guest.


  21. Chad says:

    Wow, that was a tough one. And to think how many of us wanted it to be Joan Bennett. 🙂
    P.S. Based on those other two pics, I would have probably guessed it to be Ella Raines (again, due to my interest in Film Noir style movies)


  22. Don Danard says:

    The first picture doesn’t look that much like her, but the other two do; Patricia Morison in her Paramount days.


  23. Bob Hansen says:

    Patricia Morison?


  24. Rick Scott says:

    Patricia Morrison. Missed her last time and kicked myself!!


  25. Gregory Moore says:

    What a beauty she was. And a very timely tribute, too, as next week marks her 97th birthday. She’s apparently still well and has lived at Park LaBrea for the past 50 years.
