"Single pose of pretty young lady. Copy made for Arthur Samuels. Date 7/1/1946. On bottom of photo the words Hollywood Studio is stamped." -- Library caption.
Hollywood appears to be calling with what appears to be a studio headshot. Who she is and what her connection might be to Brookhaven, if any, is a huge, unanswered question. Notice above Hollywood is another embossed word, but I cannot make it out. It almost looks like Francois, which might change everything.
I am hopeful someone out there can enlighten me. Is she someone famous that I'm not recognizing? Is she a Hollywood Wanna Be with a backstory that leads to Brookhaven? Or is she just another pretty face? Perhaps our best clue to solving this mystery is the name Arthur Samuels, but it's not a name I'm familiar with.
