Mystery photo! [By Witzel!]
[Update: Please congratulate RJ, Floyd Thursby (are you our old pal Waldo Lydecker in disguise?), Eve Golden, Mary Mallory, Gregory Moore, Don Danard and Rick Scott for identifying our mystery chap!]
[Update+: Yes, this Francis Ford (c. 1923) except for one photo of Walter Brennan labeled as Francis Ford.]
There’s a new photo on the jump!
Nov. 4, 1923: The inventory of Francis Ford Studios, 6044 Sunset Blvd., for sale at auction.
6044 Sunset Blvd. via Google maps’ street view.
Sept. 6, 1953: Francis Ford dies.
[Update+: Francis Ford in "The Ox-Bow Incident" ]
[Update: Please congratulate Rance Ryan, Randy Skretvedt and Gary Martin for identifying our mystery fellow! ]
[Update: Francis Ford in an undated publicity photo.]
[Update: Mike Hawks, back from vacation, has identified our mystery chap!]
Our mystery fellow has a mystery fowling piece.
[Update: OK, this is obviously Walter Brennan in “My Darling Clementine,” – obvious except to the person who labeled the photo as our mystery chap. But both fellows have something in common.]
[Update: Francis Ford and Jane Withers, 1935. Please congratulate Mary Mallory, Don Danard, Dewey Webb, Lee Ann, Mike Hawks, Rick Scott for identifying Jane. Julie Merholz and Lee Ann also identified Francis Ford. ]
Our mystery chap gets some help with his makeup!
