    Vintage Photos of Three Leading Ladies of Horror. A trio of beautiful actresses who made their mark in classic horrors: Mary Nolan, "Maizie" of Lon Chaney's West of Zanzibar; Patsy Ruth Miller, "Esmeralda" of Chaney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame; and Madge Bellamy, "Madeleine" of Bela Lugosi's White Zombie. The Nolan and Bellamy portraits are 11" x 14" and each bears the stamp en verso of noted photographer Edwin Bower Hesser of New York; the MIller shot is 9" x 12" with original stamp (torn) en verso. The Mary Nolan picture identifies her en verso in pencil as "Imogene Wilson," her stage name from her era as a Ziegfeld Girl. The Bellamy picture is color-tinted. Gorgeous portraits in overall Very Fine condition. No wonder these ladies tempted the horror stars.
