[Update: Well our torrid mystery gal stumped everybody! I wish I had more photos of her, but there aren’t any. This is Ann Ainslee in “White Cargo,”  a rather notorious Los Angeles stage production of 1939. The Times reported that Ainslee left “White Cargo” to go into pictures, but she had almost no film career as far as I can tell. And in case you’re wondering, I used her photos because they are too great not to share. I wonder what became of her.]

Here’s our weekend mystery gal!
There’s a new photo on the jump!

Joan Blondell

Jeanette MacDonald's stand-in auditioning as Dorothy Lamour's stand-in

Joan or Gloria Blondell ???

Ruth Etting?

Mystery gal is Jeanette MacDonald

That's a nineteen-twenties face on a thirties body, with a sarong in its heart.

Helen Broderick.

Looks like an Island gal to me. Rock Island, Illinois? Catalina Island (on the weekends)?

Dorothy Lamour?

Sofia Ortega?

Oh, of course, Ann Ainslee! Always one of my faves--don't know why I didn't recognize her.

Well, at least you are giving totally unknown talent their 15 minutes of fame.
