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!

Watch the trailer here (sadly, there's something wrong with the embed code).
