Having a senior moment, as I should know who this is. Any thoughts?

Marie Prevost. The same image is currently for sale on ebay, which I think was bought from another dealer who had it for sale a couple of months ago.

I was a little dubious of the dealer saying it was Marie, but I wonder if the lighting is throwing me off. I compared it to a couple of other photos I have of her in profile and they look different, but the lighting on those are flatter than what was used on this one. When I have some time, I may overlay this photo over one of the other ones and see if they match.

Well, here's a side-by-side comparison with a photo of Ms. Prevost. Does seem like 2 different people.

I agree. Marie's nose and mouth are quite different.

It took me a while, but I pulled out this photo, which I won on ebay from Baby Jane. I made a mistake, it's not Marie Prevost, but Jean Acker.

Thanks, Mary. I have another photo of Jean, but not in profile.
