Thanks to Peebs for sharing the following photo with me - she always comes up with the perfect photo at the right time:

                                                            76d1a6d3767b0ff6e4ff223039574e14.jpg

 The near spider-like costume made me think that this was the glamor, although almost never as outrageous as this, which Norma Shearer wanted and largely cemented for her legacy. The idea of playing an aged actress as the proverbial spider woman never was Norma Shearer who's said to have turned down SUNSET BOULEVARD which she apparently found distasteful.

 It's certainly a different look for Norma.  Here's Herbert Marshall's similarly bug-like costume also from Riptide (1934)
