Attractive portrait of the young Sarah Bernhardt, inscribed above her head.

The most logical candidate for “Mademoiselle Moore” would seem Eva Moore (1870-1965), who had a long stage career, and from 1920 made many films. She was quite well known, married to
actor-manager H. V. Edmond.
Theater critic and translator Michael Feingold (1945-2022) knew Eva Le Gallienne (1899-1901) when he was a student a Yale.
