This postcard says this is Pearl White, but it doesn't really look like her. Any other opinions?

Thanks,
Mark

The mis-identification as Pearl White was probably caused by a caption for the photo in an issue of Photoplay that read: "A candidate for the throne of the lost princess of thrillers, Pearl White, Juanita Hansen was once a beach beauty...".

There are definitely vintage postcards that were sold with errors.

Actually, John Barrymore had nothing to do with the film Three Weeks in Paris (1925).

This postcard from Monsieur Beaucaire says it is Valentino and Bebe Daniels, but it is actually Doris Kenyon.

What about this card?

Is it really Mae Murray?

I may have asked this before several years ago, but can anyone identify the actress on the right in this still from "The Divine Woman" with Greta Garbo.

Looks like Paulette Duval, with a wig, of course...

I have some new actors that are unidentified. They are obviously not silent performers, but I wonder if anyone recognizes them.

Thanks!

Thanks Brooksie and Mitch for your guesses.

And thanks MaryGH for showing the mislabeled Tom Tyler card.
