If I had to guess, I'd say it's behind her head under her hair.
And here is another picture from that shoot; she is dressed for the original production of Can Can


(wiping brow) What a gorgeous shot! Thanks to the Kodachrome stability for giving us these colors. I'm proud to say that I processed K-14 for five years of my career over the 50th anniversary. Lots of cleaning gunky cine racks in those dye heavy developers.

[I believe this was actually an Ektachrome, which we lump in with the "Kodachrome" tag. Photoshop deserves probably as much credit as Kodak for this looking the way it does. - Dave]

Dis - Arming?

This is gorgeous, but I'm trying to figure out where her right arm is. Is it up behind her head? It is a strange angle. I remember her from various movies and she did have two arms.

Thank you Kodachrome!

As much as my nostalgic/living historian/appreciator of all things past-butt likes tintypes and B&W, this beauty was made for color.

In black and white, they're all blondes and brunettes.

Kodachrome [RIP] gave us the nice bright colors, the greens of summer ...

This enchanting redhead would have been a blonde or brunette in this pic if it weren't for good ol' Kodachrome.

To quote a great man [cough cough, Dave], previously seen here!

I just might be purchasing my first Shorpy print.
