Lantelme in Paris-New-York comedy

Paris-New-York was a comedy written by Francis de Croisset and Emmanuel Arène for Théatre Réjane in 1907. It wasn’t a big success, and Lantelme’s role was a very little one. Tired to perform insignificant roles, Lantelme had a violent quarrel with Réjane and even moved to Lyon, where she starred in Le Ruisseau (written by Pierre Wolff) and in classic Le Barbier de Seville.

Just for comparison:

Maybe it’s Lantelme, at least the profile and the jabot are very similar.
