I thought it would be fun to switch back to mystery people, so here’s today’s mystery guest!
[Update: Please congratulate Mike Hawks and Mary Mallory for identifying our mystery fellow!]

[Update: Everybody recognized the easy mystery guests and identified the film under production. But the mystery woman was variously identified as Marion Davies (no), Joan Crawford (no), Jeanette MacDonald (no) and another woman, which was wrong but on the right track. Please congratulate Mark Heimback-Nielsen for identifying her!]
[Update 2: Tay Garnett, his wife Helga Moray, Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Wallace Beery on the "China Seas" set. It’s not clear whether this photo was ever published in The Times.]
Here’s our mystery guest with some (absolutely not) mystery companions. I held this out until Wednesday to keep from making it too easy.
[Update: I was going to name which readers identified which mystery people, but that became pretty tangled so I’m going to publish the comments and post one final mystery picture. Congratulations everybody. I will supply the missing names tomorrow!]
Here’s the photo, published April 21, 1935. The Times reported Nov. 6, 1935, that "Moray filed an application with the American Society of Cinematographers and is the only professional feminine motion picture photographer in the film industry."
For Thursday, we have a mix of mix pros and non-pros. Can you sort them out?
Here’s our mystery guest with a (not) mystery companion.
[Update: This is Tay Garnett and Robert Taylor in 1963 during the production of “Cattle King.” The photo was published in 1977 with Garnett’s obituary. ]
