Jane Bartholomew Possible Model for Columbia Pictures'' Miss Liberty Logo

387070 04: An image of Columbia Pictures'' famous Miss Liberty logo is seen on a wall March 23, 2001 in Jane Bartholomew's Crestwood, IL. nursing home. Jane, 81, says she was the model for the Columbia Pictures'' famous Miss Liberty logo in the 1940s. She remembers being one of several extras ordered by Columbia Pictures'' boss, at the time, Harry Cohn in 1941 to pose as Miss Liberty for which she was paid $25. Although other women have been named as the final model, Bartholomew is certain the icon was based on her likeness. Originally from Burgettstown, PA., at the age of 16 she boarded a bus in Washington, PA. enroute to Hollywood, CA. Today, three Columbia icon photos sent to her by the studio in 1975 adorn a wall in the room of the nursing home where she lives. A stroke has robbed her of the ability to speak.
