And here’s a mysterious chap…..

[Update: This this is Chester Morris in “After Midnight With Boston Blackie.” Please congratulate Bronson Bias (1), Don Danard (2), Mike Hawks (3), Kevin King (4), Rick Scott (5) and Mary Mallory (6) for identifying him.

Here’s my real reason for running the pictures:  Most of the Boston Blackie films were done on a sound stage or a back lot, but  “After Midnight With Boston Blackie” has a few street scenes during a car chase. (Ambulances, police cars and other official conveyances are never safe when Boston Blackie is around).  I don’t recognize any of them (it is “After Midnight”) but maybe someone will.
