Nice ad. Is all that dark in the background her hair?

PS - Just a heads up - again unable to see PM's—releasing not working now. :(

I like that one. Yes, that does look like Viola. That photo has an amazing depth to it—almost a 3d effect.

Look what I found in an antique shop today! An ad from Ladies Home Journal, May 1927. About Paramount!
