    Hi George,

    That photo is by Bob Willoughby. It’s evidently either a still from, or promotional photo for, the 1955 film Marriage on the Rocks. There’s a better copy in this gallery. Willoughby is described in an article focusing on his photos of Jazz legends:

    “Bob Willoughby is a legendary Hollywood photographer whose incredible work includes many now iconic images of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, and some of Jazz history’s greatest artists. Willoughby’s career started out with him on duty as a commissioned Hollywood studio portraitist– and through his sensitive, perfectionistic eye, he created (some say even invented) the art form of photojournalistic motion picture stills.”
