Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Known as "The Girl with the Bee Stung Lips," because of the way her lips were shaped and made-up, Murray started her career on stage dancing with Vernon Castle, then graduated to the Ziegfeld Follies and became a headliner. She would make a number of films with director/husband Robert Z. Leonard, many which featured her expert ball room dancing with a variety of partners. She was a product of the silent film era. This portrait of her stamped on the verso by photographer Edd. E. Morrison, Hollywood, Ca, was taken during her heyday when she appeared in films MADEMOISELLE MIDNIGHT; CIRCE, THE ENCHANTRESS, and THE MERRY WIDOW.
