[quote=""Misfit""]Sounds like perhaps her life was interesting enough someone could write a historical novel about her?[/quote]

I agree...... the whole thing -- the beautiful, abandoned flat, the whole mystery of the thing, the discovery some 70 years later -- I think there is a great HF novel in the making here!!!!

Not to mention its beautiful, abandoned demimondaine-actress owner :) Doesn't she have the look of a woman who knows that she's supremely desirable?

Yep, it's crying out for a writer isn't it? And if there was a filmed version, well the setting is all there isn't it?!

Thanks, Misfit!

I want to know who the lady is in the portrait in the picture with Mickey Mouse.

Also...that is one heck of a vanity! Somebody will probably pay big money for that one.
