Once again, we find newsboy caps in nefarious surroundings — note the presence of a slot machine in the background.
Mary Mallory sends along a glass slide from her collection. Thanks, Mary!

This is “The Wonderful Chance.” Well, sort of. These clips appear in a Vitaphone comic short titled “The Nicklette,” along with newsreel footage, poking fun at the days of silent films. The narrator identifies Rudolph Valentino and Eugene O’Brien … but our mystery woman is identified in the narration as Elaine Hammerstein. Mary Mallory, Mike Hawks and Patrick tell me she is Martha Mansfield.
And for Tuesday, our mystery chap has some mysterious companions. (Warning: IMDB may not be much help here).
Please congratulate Mary Mallory and Mike Hawks for identifying the mystery film and actor.
And congratulate Eve Golden, Suzanne Annette Stone, Tim Doherty, Floyd Thursby, Don Danard, Jenny M., Patrick (right actor, wrong movie), Bob Hansen and Rick Scott for identifying our mystery chap.
And for Wednesday, a mystery woman!
Please congratulate Dewey Webb for identifying Monday’s mystery chap.
And for Thursday, another mystery chap. Please congratulate Mike Hawks and Mary Mallory for identifying yesterday’s mystery woman and Herb Nichols for identifying the mystery fellow in the newsboy cap.
And for Friday, the mystery woman and a mystery fellow.
Please congratulate Patrick for identifying our mystery film. Mary Mallory and Mike Hawks identified Thursday’s mystery chap and Bob Levinson and Donna identified our mysterious fellow in the newsboy cap.
