Cornel Wilde, Jean Wallace, Franchot Tone

Picture was probably shot during production of The Man On The Eiffel Tower or Jigsaw

Dewey's right, Wilde, his wife, Jean Wallace, and Tone.

I concur with Dewey Webb. At least, I had the pleasure of playing tennis with Cornel Wilde, up at Murietta Hot Springs Resort, as a young teenager, some 40 years ago.

Jean Wallace with Cornel Wilde and Franchot Tone

Franchot Tone to Jean Harlow in "Bombshell" (1933):

Your hair is like a field of silver daisies. I'd like to run barefoot through your hair!

Cornel Wilde with his wife Jean Wallace and her ex-husband Franchot Tone

Yes, Wallace, Wilde and Tone.

Photo probably taken in court when Cornel adopted Franchot's 2 sons as his own shortly after Cornel married Jean in 1951. Franchot has a bandage over his left eye so this photo was probably taken after he was badly beaten by a jealous boyfriend, also in 1951.
