Dolly Haas: Al Hirschfeld's other half

Who was this Louise Brooks-style cutie pie photographed playing the accordion, wearing trousers and smoking a cigarette or a little pipe? It was Dolly Haas and she was a famous actress (born in Germany in 1910) who married a famous American illustrator in 1943. They were married until she died in 1994. She did European films, acted on Broadway and was in an Alfred Hitchcock film. Al Hirschfeld, her illustrator-genius husband, lived to be 99 years old. LINK
