Smoking Hot - Myrna Loy in The Mask Of Fu Manchu (1932)

The beautiful Myrna Loy as Fah Lo See, daughter of the devious criminal mastermind Fu Manchu (played by Boris Karloff) in 1932's The Mask of Fu Manchu

It was the 1930s in Hollywood, you could get away with white actors pretending to be Asian then. 

But wasn't she absolutely beautiful? Here's some more stills/publicity photos from the film

I love old Hollywood; the beautiful actresses, the set design, the costumes...all so opulent. I was a big fan of Loy's as a child thanks to TV screenings of films like The Thin Man. I thought her and William Powell where sophistication personified. Here's a couple more photos of her in her glory...
