Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Great week of photos!I'm guessing this is Dolores del Rio.
I will add my wild guess, Amelia Bingham
Dag and Marie,Both wrong, the game continues.PJM
Not Theda Bara.PJM
IS IT THEDA BARA?
Not Theda BaraPJM
Is it Clara Bow?
Sorry for my delay . . .It is not Helena modjeskaIt is not Mary AstorIt is not Alla NazimovaIt is not Clara BowThe game continues!!!!
Is it Luise Rainer aka "The Viennese Teardrop"?
Mata Hari kicking off the previously suggested villain week?
Hmmm . . . perhaps a victory breakfast is in order tomorrow.It is not Mata Hari, but I like the guess.It is not Louise BrooksIt is not Luise RainerPJM
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?
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.
I doubt this is right, but I'll throw it out there: is it a very young Margaret Hamilton?
Is it Indira Gandhi?
Norma Shearer the first lady of MGM? :)
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.)
It is not Lillian GishIt is not argaret HamiltonI feel my victory breakfast is all but assured at this point.PJM
It is not:Margaret HamiltonIndira GandhiNorma ShearerLillian LangryHa! I have stumped you all.PJM
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!
It is NOT:Natasha Rambova aka Winifred Hudnut, aka Mrs. Rudolph Valentino.The game continues.PJM
I know!Is it Mrs. PJM?:)
No, it would not be Mrs. PJMFunny guess though.
It is not Sarah Barnhardt
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.
I'll try again. Is it Florence Lee?
Not Florence Lee.Perhaps I should begin gathering ingredients for the Crepe Breakfast?PJM
What are your plans for your victory breakfast? You have me stumped!
Is it Natacha Rambova?
How about Gloria Swanson?
A very young Joan Crawford?
Is it a photo of Pola Negri?
It is NOT:Pola NegriJoan CrawfordNatacha RambovaGloria SwansonThe game continues.PJM
Is it Norma Talmadge?
Good Morning to allIs it Fanny Brice ????
Okay, I've got to stop staring at this person, she's starting to look like a wax figure to me.
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
Lets put a little humor in this. Betty Boop
Good Morning all againAnother guessIs it Ruth St.Denis
Wild guess: Dorothy Parker?
Oh my, it is NOT:Norma TalmadgeIs it Fanny BriceBarbara LamarBetty BoopRuth St.DenisWould strawberry preserves or jam be better on Crepes?PJM
Florence Turner first actress to sign a long term contract with a studio.
Good guess, Florence Turner.As for Mr. PJM, definitely strawberry preserves (if you get that far :)
Maria Nikolaevna Romanova
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.]PJM
Florence Arto Vidor
It is not Florence Arto Vidor.PJM
OK, Mr. PJM, it's time for you to go start getting breakfast ready. Congratulations! (Someone PLEASE come up with the right answer first.)58 comments so far, that should keep us from an embargo for a while :)

Mollie Pickford?Renée Adorée?Madge Bellamy?? (A Texas gal)

Mary Pickford or ZaSu Pitts?
Tamara Platonovna Karsavinap
How about Viola Dana or Marion Davies?
NOTMary PickfordZaSu PittsTamara Platonovna KarsavinaViola Dana Marion DaviesMy oh my, no one is right. I think hash browns would go nicely with the crepes.PJM
How about Marceline Day or Laura La Plante?Perhaps she has nothing to do woth this week's theme.
Not Day or Laura La Plante.PJM
Ok, how about Leatrice Joy?Or Lila Lee?
Joe is persistent, I will give him that.It is not Leatrice Joynor Lila Lee.I will go to bed soon, and dream of my victory Breakfast.PJM
Ok, and that's it for me, too.Again, congratulations Mr. PJM! Have a good sleep and a wonderful breakfast :)
Dorothy Gish?Billie Burke?Joan Bennett?Claudette Colbert?
Is it Harpo Marx?
OMG, it IS Harpo Marx!
Ah well, Dorothy Parker was a very wild guess indeed!
Enjoy your victory breakfast..you have stumped us once again:)
Hi again PJM and allIs it Olive Cole
GAME OVER!!!!I am the winner.It is Stacia Napierkowska, an actress from the days of silent films, and a dancer.PJM Wins!!!!
Congratulations. Enjoy your breakfast.
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!
