1935. Mary Lou Dix is the epitome of the svelte Art Deco look. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
This attractive svelte young brunette with the piquant profile is Mary Lou Dix, young actress recently added to the Columbia roster of talent. Miss Dix, who has played small parts in several important productions, is currently at work in “Sissy” (tentative title), the new Grace Moore picture directed by Josef von Sternberg, with Franchot Tone in the leading male role.
Sissy was the 1935 working title for the film The King Steps Out.
