I was digging around some of the photos that folks have sent in and ran across this one fromÂ a while ago. Any old movie buffs out there who can help her identify this movie star? Click on the image to enlarge it.
I enjoy the old photos in the newsletter, and thought I’d send one of mine.
This is my aunt, Edith Ellis, age 14, in 1929.Â The man is a famous movie star of the time, who was filming a movie in El Cajon, California, where she lived.Â I do not know who he is, and wonder if any of your readers may recognize him.Â I think the movie may have been called “Hell’s Angels” but I am not sure.Â
Edith had had polio as a child, and you can see in the photo that one leg is smaller than the other because of it.
Many thanks -
