Movieland Mystery Photo [Updated]


Here’s another mystery photo, courtesy of Steven Bibb.

[Update: After fifteen years, Esther Ralston, former Paramount star, stages a reunion with Adolph Zukor, chairman of the board of directors of Paramount Productions, the man who discovered her and put her in “Old Ironsides,” the epic production. She and 29 other silent stars and featured players have roles in “Hollywood Boulevard” (1936) story of the crisis in the life of a film star.

[Please congratulate Mary Mallory, Claire Lockhart in a rare Daily Mirror appearance (hurry back!) and Mike Hawks for identifying them and Nick Santa Maria (also making a rare appearance — hurry back!) Don Danard, Rick Scott and James Curtis for identifying Zukor.

[Most of all, the Daily Mirror thanks Steven Bibb for his continuing generosity in sharing his mystery photos. We couldn’t do it without him. (And Steven points out that Zukor was his relative). ]
