Leslie Brooks and Jeff Donnell, en route to a picnic lunch, experience mechanical difficulties with their tandem. The two actresses appeared together in Columbia Pictures’ 1944 mystery comedy Nine Girls. Donnell, nee Jean Marie, took her name from her favorite comic strip, Mutt and Jeff. She appeared in well over 100 films and TV shows. Photo: Avery.
