What is this photo from?

That's a tough one. This appears to be a stock photo from way back. The only connection to entertainment I could find was on the cover of a package containing CBS Radio Broadcasts from the 40s (?)

There are also some blogs and dating websites. You may be able to ask the blogger where they got it, though it was probably from a stock photo service.

RM basically nailed it here. Stock photo of nobody in particular. The info on RM's link said these people are no longer alive. Didn't give particulars as to WHOM they were.

 

Now, don't you feel silly in making all those wrong guesses?

 

Don't know as much as you THOUGHT you did, eh? ;)

I think I fail the test...

 

My guess is Alice Faye and John Payne doing some sort of promo photo for "Tin Pan Alley" (did the film premiere in February 1940?)...

 

Here's a still of Faye and Payne from "Tin Pan Alley":

I'm really reaching here, but it could be them in civvies doing some sort of promo for the film...

 

Otherwise, me know not...
