Bah. For once I was right, and I passed on posting it yesterday just because I wasn't 100% sure.

Oh, that the one that was listed on EBay last week as Norma Talmadge. Signature should have been a clue.

Well, it was a clever thought they had, trying to match it up with the character name, but it doesn't look much like Norma. What's more interesting is that letter. I assume this is referencing Jimmy Starr, who is in the "writers of nonfiction books" thread. Starr was Joe Schenck's office boy circa 1923, and writes a bit about it in his book.

This is incorrect. The fellow is Fred Kley. A general factotum for Cecil B. DeMille and the Lasky company--also a sometime bit player in the 1910s

I've seen 24 0f Austin's 25 filmed performances-
23 with Chaplin- so my not being able to identify him
is none too encouraging....
