Chris Noel and what may be a Yorkie? Noel was an actress in Get Yourself A College Girl. The seller of this vintage photo, Grapefruit Moon, says she “became a worldwide sensation as an Armed Forces radio personality, here she shows of her risque glamour with her dog companion in publicity for “Get Yourself a College Girl.” After Vietnam, she became a strong advocate for soldiers, particularly those suffering from PTSD at a time when it was still an unexplored phenomenon.”
