1942. In an interview with John Kobal, George Hurrell dismissed Marguerite Chapman with this throw-away comment:
Marguerite Chapman. She was one you couldn’t do anything with. She didn’t inspire anything. Just a funny dame, sort of.
Well, this shot puts paid to that, and full marks to Hurrell for the both the pose and the lighting. Marguerite is quite the vixen as she reclines provocatively in a figure-hugging ensemble set off by an extravagant fur. The caption on the back of the photo reads:
A PORTRAIT – of Marguerite Chapman, currently appearing in the Columbia production, “The Daring Young Man”.
