Sold as: “RARE 1940’s Original Photo VIRGINIA MAYO Portrait by WEEGEE”

Funny thing is, the caption on the back of the photo doesn’t say that Weegee made the photo. In the (great) caption there is a quote from Weegee, (“on account of them curves”) as an award presenter, not as the photographer. (That’s a curve or perhaps even a knuckleball…)
(There are photos of Weegee and Mayo, each holding a small movie camera, on the same set.)
Our opinion: the photo was not made by Weegee.
