  8. It's relatively late in the day for this to remain unsolved. Where's Nate? Or... did PJM misplace his phone booth necessary to change identities?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sorry. Nate looked for a time this morning and realized he had too much to do. I'm pretty sure I've never seen this photo and I didn't turn up anything good when I was searching today. It's a really neat looking photo. I'll have to leave this to someone else. If I were to keep guessing, I'd assume it's a actress/singer/dancer on a set. The outfit doesn't look oriental to me, perhaps Hungarian, but maybe just yesteryear misunderstanding what Oriental outfits were supposed to look like. The box also doesn't look Far Eastern to me, the round inserts make me wonder if this is supposed to be a combo makeup/jewelry case.

    Anyway, if this photo has you stumped too, you're welcome to give a go at the one on my site starting in half an hour. My apologies if it just adds to the frustration - it's just intended for fun.

  10. I doubt this is right, but I'll throw it out there: is it a very young Margaret Hamilton?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Norma Shearer the first lady of MGM? :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lillian Langry? (If it's not PJM it SHOULD be! After all you are in Texas home of Judge Roy Bean who Adored Lilly Langry.)

    ReplyDelete
  13. It is not Lillian Gish

    It is not argaret Hamilton

    I feel my victory breakfast is all but assured at this point.

  15. Hope it's not too late.
    Could it be Natasha Rambova aka Winifred Hudnut, aka Mrs. Rudolph Valentino?
    And oh, yes, great photos this week. I really enjoyed them!

    ReplyDelete
  16. It is NOT:

    Natasha Rambova aka Winifred Hudnut, aka Mrs. Rudolph Valentino.

  17. I know!

    Is it Mrs. PJM?

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. No, it would not be Mrs. PJM

    Funny guess though.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay, I'm stumped. Nate's comments about the box are incorrect, I think. It looks to me that she is supposed to be a psychic or fortune teller in this photo. She has tarot cards.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'll try again. Is it Florence Lee?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not Florence Lee.

    Perhaps I should begin gathering ingredients for the Crepe Breakfast?

    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  22. What are your plans for your victory breakfast? You have me stumped!

    ReplyDelete
  23. A very young Joan Crawford?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Is it a photo of Pola Negri?

    ReplyDelete
  25. It is NOT:

    Pola Negri
    Joan Crawford
    Natacha Rambova
    Gloria Swanson

    The game continues.

  26. Is it Norma Talmadge?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Good Morning to all

    Is it Fanny Brice ????

    ReplyDelete
  28. Okay, I've got to stop staring at this person, she's starting to look like a wax figure to me.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is my first post though I've followed your site for a very long time and enjoyed looking at the pictures you post, and reading the comments.

    Is this lady Barbara Lamar

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lets put a little humor in this. Betty Boop

    ReplyDelete
  31. Good Morning all again

    Another guess

    Is it Ruth St.Denis

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my, it is NOT:

    Norma Talmadge
    Is it Fanny Brice
    Barbara Lamar
    Betty Boop
    Ruth St.Denis

    Would strawberry preserves or jam be better on Crepes?

    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  33. Florence Turner first actress to sign a long term contract with a studio.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Good guess, Florence Turner.

    As for Mr. PJM, definitely strawberry preserves (if you get that far :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. It is not Florence Taylor, It is not Anna Pavlova, It is not Maria Nikolaevna Romanova.

    I think proper crepes call for the batter to be mixed the evening before cooking them. Better go mix some up.]

    ReplyDelete
  53. Enjoy your victory breakfast..you have stumped us once again:)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi again PJM and all

    Is it Olive Cole

    ReplyDelete
  55. GAME OVER!!!!

    I am the winner.

    It is Stacia Napierkowska, an actress from the days of silent films, and a dancer.

    PJM Wins!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Congratulations. Enjoy your breakfast.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Now that was a good victory PJM! Silent film was my guess and is where I did most of my searching, never coming up with that actress! At as far as I can recall anyway. My eyes are still bleeding from this! The fact that women can look so different from one pic to the next made it all the more difficult. Hairstyles, coloring, make up, lighting and costuming can sure make them look like and entirely different person!

    Congradulations!
