There is no info on these performers or what it is they’re performing.  If I may theorize, I believe it is a play about a high society woman, Isabella (left), who, bored with her marriage, finds a wild, freeloving woman,  Jacqueline (right), and seduces her.  Slipping her a note with her address (pictured here) the two go back to her rowhouse for a spot of tea and engage in an afternoon of unbridled passion until Isabella’s husband comes home, finds them, and agrees to be their sex slave. 
Again, this is just a guess but I bet that’s pretty close.

103 year old photo of a woman with a hose.  Given the fake backdrop and grass, it was probably for an advertisement but who cares, right?  It’s a 103 year old photo of a woman with a hose.  Isn’t that enough?

In love scenes [Robert Mitchum’s] curious langour, which suggests Bing Crosby supersaturated on barbiturates, becomes a brand of sexual complacency that is not endearing. Jane Greer, on the hand, can best be described, in an ancient idiom, as a hot number. James Agee’s review of Out of the Past, Time Magazine, December 15, 1947
