Movie Star Mystery Photo
Los Angeles Times file photo
Update: This is Eleanore Whitney! Information on the back of the photo, published May 16, 1937, says: “Fanchon, Hollywood’s only woman producer, says that Eleanore Whitney has the loveliest ‘pout’ on the screen. But pouting or smiling, most persons agree that Eleanore is attractive. She is shown here as she appears with Johnny Downs and Charlie Ruggles in Paramount’s ‘Turn Off the Moon.’ ”
A photograph showing everything that was banned in Hollywood photos.
Oct. 28, 1979: I’ve heard about this photo but never seen it until now. Unfortunately, the reproduction is fairly murky. Note the mention of our mystery lady, Eleanore Whitney. A better copy is here, misattributed to Life magazine.
