    Is that really Marie Prevost or is it Gloria Swanson, the star of Teddy at the Throttle?

      Hey Jeff. It’s hard to say for certain. Wikipedia lists the title of this photo with Marie Prevost as the name, but then it says it is Gloria Swanson in the description. A couple other sites say it is Marie, with no mention of Gloria. So, again, it’s hard to say for certain. Especially as the two actresses look so similar.
