Great set of pictures!

I know this is an image from the forties, but you wouldn't happen to know who this actress is, would you?

Glad you liked them!
Im not 100% sure, but it looks like Ann Sheridan.

It's so rare to see her smiling openly like this that I'm not sure either. And if it's her it's certainly is a very young Ann Sheridan.

Now that you mention it, it would be rare to see Ann Sheridan smiling like that, so it's probably not her.

Can it be Rita Hayworth? she was a big smiler.

The only other possibility that occurred to me was Lana Turner, but it's not an exact match either.

While not definitive, I offer my evidence for it being Ann Sheridan.

I think that looks better than my second guess of Rita Hayworth

An anonymous friend placed a vote for Jean Rogers.

I was very convinced by the Ann Sheridan montage, and I'm going with it, all caution be damned. Thank you, guys! :)

Thanks to Mike for bringing this rotated Rita photo to our attention. I added another photo on the left, but don't know if it helped any.

They should have plaid sisters in a movie. I can see a difference in the teeth line and the cheeks.

Yep, It looks like Hayworth has a sharper chin, and is a little less cheeckier than the girl in the photo. The hair looks close, except for the slight peak on hayworth.

Okay, this is one more of Ann Sheridan comparison.

The image has been moved or deleted, that's what they say, the bastards.

My latest guess is Martha Vickers (found in Agence Eureka) :
