Movie Star Mystery Photo

Update: This is Sharon Lynn. Please congratulate Nick Santa Maria, Dewey Webb, Gregory Moore, Annie Frye, Mary Mallory and R. Ahuna for correctly identifying her. Nick, who was first, explains that he's a big Laurel and Hardy fan.

This photo is from "Sunnyside Up," 1929.

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: Pauline Garon.

Check back next week for another mystery photo!

2009_0326_mystery_photo Here are two more shots of our mystery woman. Please congratulate Nick Santa Maria and Dewey Webb for correctly identifying her.

"Randolph Man," Eve Golden, Claire Lockhart, Dewey Webb and Carmen recognized her companion, above, as Frank Albertson.

Update: Sharon Lynn in 1932. These photos were to publicize "The Big Broadcast," but they may just be fashion shots.
