Update – Signe Hasso, May 11, 1941.

As most people realized, this is Signe Hasso, who died in 2002 at the age of 86.
Just a reminder on how this works: I post the mystery photo on Monday and reveal the answer on Friday ... or on Saturday if I have a hard time picking only five pictures; sometimes it's difficult to choose. 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 reward is bragging rights. 

The answer to last week's mystery star: Marion Burns!

Update: (April 30, 1944) Dutch Nordic – Paramount seems to have a penchant for beautiful Swedish actresses. First it was Ingrid Bergman cast with Gary Cooper in “For Whom the Bell Tolls.” Now they give Gary lovely Signe Hasso in Cecil De Mille’s “The Story of Dr. Wassell.” She plays a Dutch nurse, and wait until you see that pink and cream loveliness in gorgeous Technicolor,

Here's another photo of our mystery gal. Please congratulate Dewey Webb and Gerald McCann for identifying her!
