Le Vieil Homme written by Georges de Porto-Riche and produced at the Renaissance Theatre, Paris in January 1911

Some scenes from the five-act play of Le Vieil Homme (The Old Man, first published in 1911) written by the French playwright Georges de Porto-Riche (1849-1930) and produced at the Renaissance Theatre (théâtre de la Renaissance), Paris in January 1911

"Rehearsal of Le Vieil Homme. Scan from Femina, 15 December 1910. Lantelme is second on the right. The last one on the right is Alice Vermell (or Vermel, Vermeil – spellings are different. Here she’s called Vernell). This actress was one of few guests at the yacht L’Aimée in July 1911 and could know why Lantelme died. At the trial (when Lantelme’s husband Alfred Edwards was accused of murder) she supported the version of accident. On the same photo we also see writer Porto-Riche, madame Simone and other actors."
