THE LATEST ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COVER

I'M HAVING NO LUCK ZEROING IN ON THE IDENTITY OF THE MYSTERY LADY FROM "THE YELLOW CAB MAN." I DID FIND THIS BASICALLY USELESS STILL FROM THE MOVIE AND WE CAN SEE THAT THE OUTFIT IS THE SAME AS IT IS IN MY WARDROBE SNAPSHOT.
WELL, WE CAN BARELY SEE IT.
IN THIS SHOT, SHE LOOKS LIKE RETA SHAW.

Back in February of last year, when I was working through my collection of MGM snapshots, I did a post that included this photo. Once the guesses were in, I surmised that this might be Madge Blake, but as I wrote back then, I wasn't very sure. Turns out I was right about my uncertainty. Just turned on the television, which was tuned to TCM (what else?). At that very moment, I saw this woman on the screen! Yes, I shrieked. The film was, "The Yellow Cab Man" starring Red Skelton. I zoomed to imdb.com to check out the cast and an answer still eludes me. It could be someone named Edith Leslie, she was credited as "Big Woman." I could find no photo of Edith online, though I haven't given it much effort.
