Maurice Chevalier and Louise Brooks - not quite

The French singer, actor and entertainer Maurice Chevalier is familiar to fans of Louise Brooks for his lovely cover of "Louise", the early vocal hit. The song peaked at number 3 on the American music charts in 1929. Though not about Brooks, it has come to be closely associated with the actress. Give it a listen here, or on RadioLulu, where version besides those by Chevalier can be heard.


This French Belgian candy card says it depicts Chevalier and Brooks, but it doesn't. Not sure who the look-alike actress is, but it ain't Brooks. Does anyone know? She looks familiar. The front and back of the card is shown.
