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:http://groups-beta.google.com/group/alt.movies.silent/browse_thread/thread/e541cd361d95bb78/eb427a2d47a3d918?
It says a lot that, bas as her atitude and manners were, Sylvia was actually scared of Bette Davies! :D
Nobody wanted to tangle with Bette! except maybe Joan crawford.
