Mystery Woman

From a book review quoted here in yesterday's post
of 12:41 PM ET, "Special Topics" — 

"That teacher, Hannah Schneider, has the magnetism of
Miss Jean Brodie and the film-noir mystique of Lauren Bacall.
When Blue meets her, in a 'Hitchcock cameo,' by the frozen-food
section at a grocery store, she falls under her spell. 'She had an
elegant sort of romantic, bone-sculpted face, one that took well to
both shadows and light,' Blue recalls. 'Most extraordinary though
was the air of a Chateau Marmont bungalow about her, a sense
of RKO, which I’d never before witnessed in person.' Hannah
teaches a course on cinema in a room lined with posters . . . .

From a Facebook page related to the death yesterday morning at
Webster University of the teacher of a course on cinema —

"I need a photo opportunity . . . ." — Paul Simon

The title of the film in the cover photo above is not without relevance.
