Julnar of the Sea, 1919

Julnar of the Sea was a very popular three-act, Arabian Nights-themed stage production concocted by the ever-adventurous Denishawn Dance Studio (Ruth St. Denis & Ted Shawn) headquartered in Hollywood. The title-role was played/danced by Lillian Powell, who went on to recurring roles in TV's Dragnet & The Man Behind the Badge, as well as guest shots on My Three Sons, Father Knows Best & Adam-12.
