An exquisitely posed, unusually delicate view of Myrna Loy, by Elmer Fryer, the Hollywood glamour photographer who had perhaps the best sense of modernist style and fashion. This unusual view features Loy in blonde wig in her role as Sophie the dancer in "Bride of the Regiment." An early view of the star, who would come to be known for her sassy wit and hard nosed sexuality in the Nick & Nora "Thin Man" series.
