  1. The texture on this image is amazing, do you think it was the original paper the print was made on or retouching on the negative. I'm assuming this is a Paramount publicity portrait?

  2. The angle of her face doesn't match where it joins her neck. It almost looks like they cut-and-pasted her head on another picture of her body.

  3. The negatives were etched by the photographer, as I understand it.
