This closeup photo shows the changing eyes of Mrs. Winnie Ruth Judd, the "windows of her soul." Her eyes, lazy with sedatives, large, hazel-colored and set far apart, are described as pools of mystery. Sometimes they are wide with appealing sweetness that arouses the protective instinct in men and women alike, character students say. Sometimes they are half-lidded with curling lashes that hide secrets. And sometimes they dart fires of anger or passion. Then they appear to be a cold forbidding steely color. Photo dated: October 28, 1931.
