The person playing the ukulele is Garbo. Joan is the one with all the kids.

 

So I still don't get why you posted 'Ukulele Joan' but showed a picture of Garbo.

 

Oh well, since I play the ukulele it is always nice to see two pictures of someone playing it (and Garbo makes it all the better).

 

PS: The spell checker spells 'ukelele' as 'ukulele'. According to the dictionary, using 'u' is more common then using the 'e', but 'e' is a valid variation.

My mistake. I thought it was Joan.

Nope. That was Garbo, in her more or less original state, pre-MGM makeover. You can see the potential there, but she ain't GARBO. Not yet.

 

And thank you for explanation of "Ukelele Ike." I get what you were going for now. ;)

{font:arial, helvetica, sans-serif}James--Yup that's her. I have the same photo in a book of Hollywood glamour shots called Image Makers:60 Years of Hollywood Glamour p. 90. It's a 1926 general publicity shot for Pathe. She would have been about 18.{font}
