Update: As three people guessed, this is Pauline Garon. Please congratulate Tom Ratliff, Annie Frye and R. Ahuna. Above, a still from "Man From Glengarry," 1922.


Feb, 20, 1923: An ad for "Adam's Rib," with Pauline Garon.

Just a reminder on how this works: I post the mystery photo on Monday and reveal the answer on Friday. To keep the mystery photo from getting lost in the other entries, I move it from Monday to Tuesday to Wednesday, etc., adding a photo every day.

I have to approve all comments, so if your guess is posted immediately, that means you're wrong. (And if a wrong guess has already been submitted by someone else, there's no point in submitting it again). If you're right, you will have to wait until Friday. There's no need to submit your guess five times. Once is enough. The only prize is bragging rights. 

The answer to last week's photo: Phyllis Kirk.

Check back next week for another mystery photo!

Our mystery woman is a little tougher than usual, but not impossible. Please congratulate Tom Ratliff, who correctly identified her. He says: I wish I had a more romantic reason for "knowing", like "I'm a big silent film fan", but I'm just a resourceful internet user that gets a buzz out of solving puzzles like Mystery Photo."

Update: Pauline Garon in a photo from "Satan in Sables," 1925.
