Most Wanted #3: Fox Movietone Follies of 1930 with Marjorie White

Still photo featuring the delightful and energetic Marjorie White, (2nd from left) in a scene from Fox Movietone Follies of 1930. White made only 14 feature films before her promising career was cut short by her tragic death at the age of 26, from injuries sustained in a auto accident. She excelled as an actress/singer/dancer in musical comedy second lead and supporting roles (Sunnyside Up, Happy Days, Just Imagine, Diplomaniacs), in which she was usually the most watchable performer on the screen. Fox Movietone Follies of 1930 may be the only film that featured White in a starring/co-starring role (I could be wrong, I haven't seen it, or all of her screen roles). A restored print does exists at U.C.L.A., but unfortunately, will most likely never see a Video/DVD release.

Frank Richardson and Marjorie White. Can anyone can help identify the two actresses/twins on the right?
