Old Hollywood's sexy, power-couple, Viola Dana and Lefty Flynn, featured in The Maybelline Story..

Viola Dana was one the the first beautiful Photoplay stars to appear in a Maybelline ad.  She endorsed Lash-Brow-Ine as well as Maybelline in 1920.

Maybelline model and Silent Film actress, Viola Dana with her husband, actor, Lefty Flynn.

Maybelline model, Viola Dana appeared in film magazines throughout the 1920's.

 Maurice Flynn became "Lefty" Flynn because he kicked the ball with his left foot, while attending Yale University  in 1910. He was expelled from Yale in 1913 after he marrying Irene Leary, a chorus girl.  They divorced 11 days later.  "Lefty,"  kept his wild-man reputation and made 40 films between 1919 and 1927. 

Often as the lead actor, and sometimes as a sports hero or daring adventurer, "Lefty's" athletic appearance and abilities made him one of Hollywood's first "Hunks."
