[Update: This shows Richard Dix and Gertrude Olmstead filming a scene in Paramount's 1928 "Sporting Goods." Director Malcolm St. Clair is the fellow to the left of the roadster talking to Dix and Olmstead. The paper with the caption information on the back of the photo is torn, so I can't be sure but I believe the woman in the rumble seat may be Myrtle Stedman. ]

Plus-fours and argyle socks. Aren’t they amazing? I wonder what they looked like in color.

… and I’m intrigued by the mystery roadster with the steering wheel in the middle of the dash….
[Update: On second thought, maybe it is a right-hand drive. I would have guessed the photo is flopped but the license plate would be reversed as well.]
