Gasp! That first Sylvia Sidney photo took my breath away! Also love the last one, and the photo of Evelyn Brent by the faux fire place. Superb!

I wasnt 100% sure if that first photo was of Sylvia Sidney, she looks a little different, and its so unlike the other photos. That is probably by Hurrell, no?

I really like Evelyn Brent's look, she posed some great photos. I really get a kick out of her hairdo in photo #6.

I think it's her alright. If it's not by Hurrell it's just as divine, that light and shadow effect... Very chiaro scuro, like da Vinci. I loved her in Beetlejuice.

Evidently she was quite a character in her later years. If you want to read some anecdotes about her at a film festival appearance a few years back, scroll through this thread:

It says a lot that, bas as her atitude and manners were, Sylvia was actually scared of Bette Davies! :D
