Above, a very nice promo photo of U.S. actress Barbara Pepper, who appeared in such films as 1938's The Lady in the Morgue and 1940's Foreign Correspondent, and was later a constant on television during the ’50s and ’60s. Taken as a whole, her career was a rarity in that she made the transition from child performer to sex symbol all the way to chubby late middle-aged lady, and worked steadily the entire time. Doubtless she would have continued into her golden years but she died early at age fifty-four. This shot is undated but probably from around 1940.
