Reposting this because we figured out what it was from - thanks to some very helpful Damfinos!   It’s a still from “Splash” (Oct. 3, 1931) - one of the first Pete Smith Shorts made for MGM.  Buster had just finished filming “Sidewalks of New York” and agreed to make a cameo in this 1-reeler along with Buster Crabbe.  It was supposedly about a diving/swimming exhibition.  Jules White & Zion Myers directed it.  Sadly, it seems the film is lost (or just temporarily misplaced - I’m an optimist!).
