The Captivating Miss Young in 1921

As a group, the Bain series of photos of Miss Young (no wedding ring), some in cars (a few with another young woman), some without, and some in room interiors, are typical of their "candid" feature photos of attractive stage performers, both actresses and singers, that were published in New York's illustrated dailies and Sunday supplements. One of the interior shots shows her studying a piece of sheet music, and another shows her holding the February 1921 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, with a cover by Anne Harriet Fish. Alas, although I found a few contemporary actress and opera singer portraits that resembled her, none were the cheerful lady herself.


I'd like to know anyone with a laugh so infectious that even a still image makes me smile.
