The Badass 28

In my late-night Internet travels last night I kept coming across this photo with the explanation "Does anyone know the story behind this?" I'm sure a majority of the people know it's photoshop, but this is the source and the story behind it if you ever wondered.... The "Badass 28" are actually 1928 WAMPAS Baby Stars in a promotional photo. This is only 8 of the 13, which included Lupe Velez! In the photo above I can definitely identify Gwen Lee (W), Molly O'Day (first A), Sue Carol (P), and Audrey Ferris (28). Here are more photos of the ladies: And each lady individually.... Flora Bramley Alice Day Ann Christy Audrey Ferris Dorothy Gulliver Gwen Lee June Collyer Lina Basquette Lupe Velez Molly O'Day Ruth Taylor Sally Eilers Sue Carol There you have it. Not as "badass" as it seems. I have no clue who photoshopped it, though. Lol.
