Description (Brief)
Film still printed on a card showing a woman and a slot machine. The small card was probably a promotional piece or vending item like those which accompanied packs of gum and cigarattes or were distributed through machines at amusement areas. In the photograph, a woman in a dress with feathers in her hair is holding a fan and gazing above her right shoulder. A highly decorated slot machine with a dial showing playing cards is in the foreground. The number 384 is written in the lower right corner of the card.
