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.

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.
