Early photo of Agnes Moorehead

Description:
This is the earliest photo I could find of the talented actress Agnes Moorehead. If you have any details about this photo like when it might have been taken please leave a comment and I'll update the description.

2020 Update: Thanks to some sleuthing by Peter Nosko the photographer seems to be Irving Chidnoff who was a celebrity photographer in New York City that was active between the years 1925-1948.

Given that Agnes was born in 1900, I'd say this photo was likely taken around 1925-1930.

Judging by the hairstyle and make up style it would have to be the late twenties or early thirties

It says Chidnoff, N.Y.. Irving Chidnoff opened his studio in New York in 1925. According to IMDb, she arrived in N.Y. in 1928 to study drama. I suspect it would be around that time that the photo is taken.

Her first film was “Citizen Kane,” as Kane’s mother, not a bad way to start. I also always think of her as the old lady alone in an isolated house, fighting off tiny space aliens in that classic episode of “The Twilight Zone.” 😎

It is believed that she died from uterine cancer from radioactive fallout from bomb tests in Nevada which blew in to the set of " The Conqueror" in 1956.
