Ona Munson, as casino owner Madame Gin Sling, poses in costume for her lady-of-mystery role in Josef von Sternberg's The Shanghai Gesture, 1941. Original image is a carbro print. The red hibiscus in Ms. Munson's right hand comes from Ned Scott's garden in La Canada, California. He often brought props from his own house to enhance and augment his imagery.
