Identify actress

I don't think it's Mary Pickford, the gown this actress is wearing doesn't fit any pictures that Mary Pickford was in.

Thanks for your response anyway. :wink:

I'm still looking.

I believe it could be Irene Dunne, either in "Cimarron" or a Western of that era.

My question is: where did you find that screen capture?

Irene Dunne was also one of my guess, Loretta Young is another actress I have in mind. And I do think it's from the early 1930's.

It's not a screen capture, a friend of mine has a bunch of these old movies stills and unfortunately they are not identified.

Could be -- same outfit? Can't see the detail in the upper part of the costume in your still.

Could be -- same outfit? Can't see the detail in the upper part of the costume in your still. You have to scroll down to get the images -- I was not successful linking to them. Looks like you'll have to copy and paste into Explorer or Foxfire search:

Pickford/Gish had soft faces, the lady in the picture looks more chiselled.How about someone like Gloria Swanson?

I think the only "Western" Swanson was in was "Sunset Boulevard." :wink:

However, what is interesting to me is the stripped tent in the background and what looks like a wooden wheel. Could this be a circus circa the 1800's?

It's turning out to be quite a challenge. I'm wondering if the stripped tent and indeed it does look a wooden wheel are part of the picture or are they part of the production company.

You could be right that this is an onsite shot of the actor in costume but the tent, et al, are part of the facilities -- maybe the catering tent.

Have you considered Norma Shearer? In the book, The Films of Norma Shearer, there is a shot of her on the same type of set. In 1932's Strange Interlude, there is a picture of her in which her features are similar to the actress in your picture. Also in "Riptide". But, I can find no movie in which she wore the costume shown in your picture. She wore a dress with the same type of sleeves and bows in The Barretts of Wimpole Street, but buttoned to the top and not nearly as elaborate.

I'm coming from way out in left field here, but somehow the look of the lady seems to be more 1940's or 1950's ideas of western dress. The bodice is very fitted, she wears her breasts high, the waist line is very pinched.

I thought perhaps she could have been from the 50's remake of Cimmaron (with Glen Ford), making her Maria Schell, but I can't find any pictures of her.

(I'm probably quite wrong, but that outfit is NOT Lillian Gish.)

The woman in the picture bears a strong resemblance to Louise Lombard and her character "Lady Davenport" in the 2004 movie "Hidalgo" with Viggo Mortensen.

Is it possible that the photo you have is a sepia toned and fairly new photo?

It's definetely an old picture, as I stated above I'm trying to help someone who has a bunch of these old movie pictures to identify them.
