Half-naked Oscar pic?  

I always wanted to do this!
This picture has driven me mad for years and I still wonder if it´s real. I got it from Richard Ellmann´s bio "Oscar Wilde", it had credits and all. It´s our sweet Oscar performing as Salome in his own play, and he´s topless! In a dress.

Now what do you think?!

... @_@ That`s pretty much proof. Pitty. You disenchanted the whole lot of us, thanks. Now I`m crying. ;_;
No, it`s not that serious.
The actress has no boobs, nevertheless, and can therefore be easily mistaken for Oscar. XD

Sorry. ^^; I thought it was him for a couple of years too, until I saw it mentioned in Joseph Pearce's Wilde biography that the photo was misidentified and looked into it. I wonder if there was ever a corrected edition of the Ellmann book - my copy's only seven or eight years old, but it's definitely got the mistake in there.

(Then again, my copy also says that Ellmann is still alive on the copyright page... XD)
