Yesterday's Beauty & Glamour - 1950's & 1960's Studio Comp Books Loaded with B&W Photos of Aspiring Hollywood Actresses Please look at all of the photographs.

One binder has the label: "NEW FACES WOMEN 25-35 [age] A-G." The other is simply labeled "WOMEN (2)." These interesting old binders originally were used by the producers of (and the bio sheets are all marked) Dragnet Productions and/or Mark VII LTD.
