This is an illustration of Shakespeare's Dark Lady, or at least this is the way I imagined she might look.
The film excerpt is a screen test by John Barrymore, Drew Barrymore's brilliant grandfather, followed by an interview with Joan Crawford. Note her discretion when she's asked about Barrymore's personal hygiene. Do you see the mask slip just for one moment before she regains her diplomatic composure?
