Tallulah Bankhead became a household name in 1924 when she played the waitress Amy in Sydney Howard's play They Knew What They Wanted, in London which went on to win the Pulitzer Prize. Many thought that Bankhead represented the ideal of the 1920s woman—beautiful, independent, and outrageous. Though Bankhead went on to a successful film career, she continued to appear onstage as well, garnering praise for her roles in The Little Foxes and The Skin of Our Teeth, among dozens of other productions. This photograph, by noted portrait photographer Cecil Beaton, is an outtake from an April 1931 feature in Vanity Fair magazine.
