Emil Grimm's work was reproduced in a special edition, Agfacolor, das farbige Lichtbild [Agfacolor, the color image] (1938). He was a contemporary of Herbert Bayer. He worked as a still photographer on a number of German films.
The actress may be Illa Meery. Meery (1915 - 2010) was born in Russia as Maria Tchernycheff-Bezobrasoff and became an actress known for "Zouzou" (1934), "Ladies Lake" and "Pension Mimosas" (1935). Purportedly she had ties to the Parisian Nazi Gestapo, but was also a Soviet spy during WWII. She was married to Henri Garat. She died in Southampton, NY.
