On the back, the publicity department’s push of Veronica as the girl with the dirty look:

DIRTY LOOK–DIRTY FACE
HOLLYWOOD–Constance Keane–Vernoica Lake to-you– can give the dirtiest of dirty-looks and have the dirtiest of dirty faces and still be charming. She proves this in her second stellar role of her meteor-like film career in :Sullivan’s Travels,” Paramount Picture to be released in February. Here she turns on that dirty look for Sullivan, played by Joel McCrea, when she finds out that the “bum” she has befriended with her last 35 cents is really a movie director rolling in the lap of luxury.

The photo was used for Sullivan’s Travels, but the portrait was first used to promote This Gun For Hire in 1941.
