Movieland Mystery Photo – Mystery Preacher Edition [Updated +]

Mystery Photo

True confession: I always read signs in movies. So when I saw this name, I became suspicious….

Mystery Photo

[Update: Please congratulate B.J. Merholz, Dewey Webb, Greg Clancey, Gregory Moore and Barbara Klein for identifying the mystery preacher and the film. ]

One reason I posted this mystery film was because of the number of newsboy caps, like this one worn by our mysterious (not) guitarist.


And also because of this shot that begins at the 1:10-minute mark.

[Update: Please congratulate Mary Mallory, Kevin Tvedt, Karen, LC, Periwinkle, Herb Nicholas,  Lee Rivas, Pat van Hartesveldt, Larry Miller and Bartstar for identifying the actors and the film.

[Interestingly enough, nobody mentioned that this is the first Steadicam shot. ]

    Harry Holcombe is the minister and David Carradine (as Woody Guthrie) is talking to him in the 1976 film “Bound for Glory.”

    Bound for Glory?


  18. Larry Miller says:

    Bound for Glory


  19. Bartstar says:

    Harry Holcomb in Bound for Glory.
    I never saw the movie, but as soon as I saw the 2nd photo in the radio station I knew it was David Carradine playing Woody Guthrie in Bound for Glory.

    It’s funny how you know certain things about movies you’ve never even seen.
    However, I had to check IMDB for the Harry Holcomb role.
