Lots of guesses, but none of them were correct. Our mystery guest has more than 30 credits on imdb and  figured in the investigation of a famous murder case.

Update: Please congratulate William (westpv) for correctly identifying our mystery woman as Jewel Carmen. Very impressive! I'll keep posting photos to see who else recognizes her.

Update: Sam (sammathtchr) also recognized her. Congratulations!

Here's another photo of our mystery woman, now with a mystery co-star!

Update: This is Kenneth Harlan in a scene from "Nobody."

And here's our mystery gal a few years later. I think her sunglasses are great.

And here she is in 1939. Our mystery woman is Jewel Carmen. She figured in the Thelma Todd case because she  was married to Roland West and owned the buildings where Todd operated her restaurant, including the garage where Todd's body was found. Carmen told investigators that Todd had heart disease and believed she only had a few years to live.
