Movieland Mystery Photo [Updated]

Jan. 25, 2012, Mystery Photo

Here’s a mystery photo from the incredible collection of Steven Bibb!

[Update: This is Sam Wanamaker in “My Girl Tisa.” The man on the left is unidentified in the caption information, but Don Danard and Mike Hawks identify him as Edgar Dearing. Wanamaker was identified by Roget-L.A., Arye Michael Bender, Jenny M. and Benito. Hawks, Danard and Pamela Porter identified Wanamaker and the movie. Congratulations!]
