My Weakness (1933)

Post by Rhino2_UK on Thu Jan 12, 2017 6:56 am

This still turns up quite a lot.

The caption names 4 actresses but there are 5 in the picture.
I'm fairly sure that the girl sitting on the chair is Marjorie King,
the beautiful brunette in the gorgeous white fullslip stood with a mirror in her hand is Gladys Blake,
stood next to her fully clothed is Lilian Harvey.
Is Jean Allen the blonde with long flowing locks stood in her white fullslip
or is she the girl sitting on the table?

Another still, this time with 8 actresses
https://feetofmud.com/2014/08/14/capitolfest-12-shows-my-weakness/
L to R I don't think the 1st girl was in the previous still
2nd Gladys Blake in the same gorgeous white fullslip
3rd Marjorie King
4th Lilian Harvey
5th to 7th I don't think these were in the previous still
8th Is the same mystery blonde who may or may not be Jean Allen?

Last is from the IMDB and clearly attributed to Lilian Harvey.

Another great find Johnbear.
I would say that the blonde with the long flowing locks in the 1st picture isn't Jean Allen or Marcelle Edwards but the brunette sitting on the table looks even less like either of them.
In the 2nd picture L to R no.6 is Marcelle Edwards. There is a picture of her on Getty Images wearing the exact same outfit.

According to IMDB Marcelle Edwards only made the one film so I would have expected that your new find has to be from 'My Weakness'. So I'm guessing that It has to be Jean Allen as the long-haired blonde in both pics. Facially it looks possible. Maybe she has a hair cut in the film.

fine photo of Gladys Blake. I'm not 100% certain that it is from 'My Weakness' but it does look like the slip she's wearing in some of the stills.
