And for Friday…..

Please congratulate Mary Mallory, Julie Merholz and Dewey Webb for identifying our mystery movie and cast.

Thursday’s mystery fellow has been identified by Don Danard (plus Wednesday’s mystery woman), Dennis Gilliam, Greg Clancey, LC, Mike Hawks, Dan Nather, Sarah and Chrisbo.

Special note:  Tuesday’s mystery fellow does indeed play piano in the movie. But the “back of the head” guy in Wednesday’s photo is someone else.

"Four Jacks and a Jill"

With one more picture. Get a load of the very young Desi Arnaz!

"Four Jacks and a Jill"

And a little jitterbugging….

    Roger Smith

  2. Gary Martin says:

    My immediate response is that he is a young George Reeves altho I doubt that he is.

  3. Patricia Ann says:

    The mouth & chin looks Ike Andy Gibb , but not the hair.

  4. Greg Clancey says:

    Looks like a young John Lennon.

  5. Don Murphy says:

    Monday- Roddy McDowell

  6. Jenny M says:

    Monday – Richard Denning

  7. william says:

    Tues…William Powell

  8. Don Danard says:

    Well, Tuesday’s Mystery Man does look like David Niven. Sort of. Kinda like.

  9. Dan Nather says:

    Monday’s gent isn’t Burt Lancaster or Kirk Douglas, but I got a feeling he’s another one of those angular handsome guys who got their start in 40s noir. As for Tuesday’s gent, the crazy little man deep inside me says Franchot Tone . . .

  10. Don Danard says:

    Wednesday’s Mystery Gal is Marion Martin.

  11. Mary Mallory says:

    Hoagy Carmichael at the piano?

  12. william says:

    Joan davis

  13. DeweyWebb says:

    June Havoc

  14. Don Danard says:

    Then again, Wednesday’s Mystery Gal could be Gypsy Rose Lee, couldn’t it?

  15. juliemerholz says:

    My Sister Eileen… with Rosalind Russell, Brian Aherne (probably yesterday’s back of the head)
    Janet Blair, George Tobias. Richard Quine is Probably Monday’s guy.

  16. Jenny M says:

    Margaret Leighton

  17. Mike Hawks says:

    June Havoc and the research continues.

  18. Mary Mallory says:

    June Havoc? Marek Windheim as pianist?

  19. Mike Hawks says:


  20. Mary Mallory says:

    HI DIDDLE DIDDLE with Havoc and Windheim.

  21. Mike Hawks says:

    I was wrong the movie is FOUR JACKS AND A JILL 1942. The man from tuesday is Ray Bolger.

  22. Don Danard says:

    Pretty sure today’s – Thursday – Mystery Photo is that of Mantan Moreland.
    And if yesterday’s Mystery Gal isn’t Gypsy Rose Lee, it’s her sister, June Havoc.

  23. juliemerholz says:

    Eddie Anderson in Brewster’s Millions.

  24. Mary Mallory says:

    Mantan Moreland today, so FOUR JACKS AND A JILL. Is that Ray Bolger Tuesday? and Jack Durant Monday? You said I was third yesterday.

  25. juliemerholz says:

    Four Jacks and a Jill…Mantan Moreland

  26. juliemerholz says:

    My goodness it took me forever…but with the help of B.J. here the piano and back of the head is Ray Bolger.

  27. Thursday: Mantan Moreland, who made way too many movies for me to pin down this one.

  28. DeweyWebb says:

    Mantan Moreland in FOUR JACKS AND A JILL

  29. Greg Clancey says:

    Thursday – Mantan Moreland

  30. LC says:

    Mantan Moreland is Thursday’s mystery gent.

  31. Gary Martin says:

  32. Mike Hawks says:

    Mantan Moreland takes it big today.

  33. Dan Nather says:

    No doubt about Thursday’s gent — Mantan Moreland.

  34. Benito says:

    Thursday’s gent sure looks like Dudley Dickerson. Or is it another guy with bulging eyes?

  35. Sarah says:

    Mantan Moreland on Thursday, but I’ll be darned if I know what movie it’s from!

  36. Chrisbo says:

    That’s Mantan Moreland Thursday.

  37. Don Danard says:

    Friday’s Mystery Man in the painting is Desi Arnez so the movie would be Four Jacks and a Jill.
    (Took me the whole week to come up with it!! )

  38. juliemerholz says:

    Desi Arnaz

  39. Rogét-L.A. says:

    Thursday: Mantan Moreland
    Wednesday: June Havoc
    Tuesday: The back of Henry Daniell?
    Monday: Jack Durant?

  40. Mike Hawks says:
