I find movie and fashion photographs taken for promotion fascinating because you can really look at the details quite clearly even in the 20s and 30s. I'll be showcasing more in the future. This photograph is probably somewhere around 8 x 10 in size and is from 1936.
I thought it would be interesting to zoom in on various areas of the photograph to take in the details.
Actress Mona Barrie (1909-1964) in quite a few movies in supporting roles. So, she would have been about 27 at the time this photograph was made.
Excerpts From Description:
"Toga Scarf Jack _From For Afternoon Functions"
"Copper colored rice-crepe" "A simple one-piece" "Wrap-around affair with a scarf jacket that slips over the right arm and drapes across the left shoulder, revealing the chartreuse facing."
The description really gives you a feel for the color and the whole look. The description is also below in a scanned image.
Isn't this a lovely "before five" outfit?

I tried to look up the movie "Here Comes Trouble" but was unable to find any YouTube clips.
Isn't it crazy how you can zoom in and even catch some of the texture to the fabric? She looks a little sad in this picture, wouldn't you say?
