Manolo asks, whose shoes?
Manolo loves the shoes!
I’m going to make a wild guess here since the shoe styles range from the 20s through about the 70s — is it Gypsy Rose Lee?
My guess, similarly wild…Mary Pickford?
Yet another wild guess–Mary Martin?
I’m thinking Leslie Caron because of the ballet shoes.
Garbo, perhaps. Or Bette Davis.
or perhaps Eleanor Powell?
There are lots of costumes in there. I suspect it is Olivia de Havilland.
or Marlene Dietrich
The best shoes in “whose shoes” ever! (Doesn’t help me know the answer, though. I’d have guessed Ruby Keeler if not for the ballet shoes.)
Cyd Charisse. Right age and started as a ballet dancer
Joan Crawford? I seem to recall she was a pretty gifted dancer, among other things.
I think it might be Louise Brooks, although it could definitely be another early film star like Clara Bow.
Someone whose career peaked in the 1930s. Someone who was in light comedy, musicals.
So Ruby Keeler a strong candidate but is she famous enough now for enough people to have a sporting chance of a guess? Jean Harlow died too soon, possibly Ginger Rogers but not enough dance shoes?
Ginger Rogers?? (just another wild guess)
I have no idea. Claudette Colbert?
I’m thinking Joan Crawford.
Another try – Mitzi Gaynor? Like Lucy, she was also a dancer.
I know, Ingrid Bergman!
I’ll go with Ginger Rogers too, but I really have no clue.
How about Barbara Stanwyck?
I think it’s Cyd Charisse. Lovely, lovely pictures!
Oops, I’m not anonymous!
The shoes look like 30s and 40s and suggest musicals. Legs are too short for Cyd Charisse and Eleanor Powell.
All I know is, those are NOT Cyd Charisse’s legs.
