Meanwhile, down in the stacks

I’ve had this picture for a while, and the more I look at it, the more it perplexes me.

Corinne Calvet at the bottom of the stairs

The lady in question is actress Corinne Calvet (1925-2001), and everything about the scene screams early 1960s: the hair, the dress, the camera angle, the numbers chiseled into the photograph for identification. Unfortunately, Calvet wasn’t doing a whole lot of acting in the early 1960s, and this doesn’t look much like it would fit into either Bluebeard’s Ten Honeymoons or Apache Uprising, her two main film roles in the 1960s, so I’m guessing this is from one of several appearances on the TV series Burke’s Law. (As usual with stuff like this, corrections are welcomed.)

    I LOVED Burke’s Law, but not well enough to ID that photo.
