An early publicity photo of Thelma Todd at Paramount, taken in front of the same backdrop as the other drape art pictures. The back is stamped "Culver Service" and states that she is a beauty contest winner.
Ebay seller listing: Photograph of actress THELMA TODD taken during her early Paramount period. There is a note on verso that reads "won state beauty contest as Miss Massachusetts" which might mean that this is taken right when she arrived in Hollywood. The photograph was used by Culver Archive and magazines (see credit stamps and labels on verso).
