Starlet With Zebra
Just because I absolutely love this publicity still of Leila Hyams, most famous for her role in Freaks. She performed in vaudeville as a child, segueing into a modeling career and then starlet-dom, never quite earning the sobriquet of "movie star". She appeared in films such as The Bishop Murder Case (based on a Philo Vance mystery) with Basil Rathbone. Needless to say, I'm dying to watch, but it doesn't seem to be on video anywhere. Fie!
