    Can answer the who, but not the what. She is Mercury Player, Agnes Moorehead. The picture?

    Zoe Caldwell in Purple Rose of Cairo

    Margaret Leighton


  4. Mete Sarabi says:

    …Jack Buchanan?


  5. Rogét-L.A. says:

    John Hurt in drag? Don’t know film, but that’s definitely the bottom half of John Wood’s face in the background.


  6. Zabadu says:

    Is it that guy from Lost In Space? Jonathan Harris, I think?


  7. Andrew says:

    Judith Anderson as the Wicked Stepmother in Cinderfella?


  8. Mike Botula says:

    Not a “mystery woman” by any stretch. But, as to who. Sorry I don’t follow t ransvestites.


  9. Mary Mallory says:

    Martita Hunt in ANASTASIA?


  10. Rotter says:

    Edgar Buchanan?


  11. Eve Golden says:

    Wow, lots of unnecessary nastiness in this thread.


  12. Gary Alexander says:

    I have to admit I saw Jonathan Harris, myself. Sorry if I have offended.


  13. Claire Lockhart says:

    Zoe Caldwell in THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO (1985)


  14. Megan says:

    Is the guy in the middle of the second photo John Wood?


  15. Benito says:

    Zoe Caldwell as the Countess in The Purple Rose of Cairo, but Jonathan Harris is a good guess.


  16. dewey webb says:

    Karen Akers


  17. Mike Hawks says:

    Here we go. #1 Zoe Caldwell. #2 Edward Herrmann, John Wood and Deborah Rush. #3 Karen Akers. All appearing in THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO.


  18. Jeff M. says:

    The movie is “Purple Rose of Cairo” and I believe the woman is Zoe Caldwell. Not a flattering still, you have to admit. (I only got this because I recognized Karen Akers in the third pic and worked backwards from there.)


  19. Gregory Moore says:

    At last….Zoe Caldwell, Karen Akers and Van Johnson in “Purple Rose of Cairo”!


  20. Mike Hawks says:

    Van Johnson it is.


  21. Mary Mallory says:

    First photo is Zoe Caldwell as the Countess in THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO. Second photo is John Wood, today is Van Johnson.


  22. LC says:

    Zoe Caldwell, John Wood, Van Johnson in The Purple Rose of Cairo.


  23. Rogét-L.A. says:

    The Purple Rose of Cairo: 1) Zoe Caldwell; 2) Jeff Daniels, John Wood and Deborah Rush; 3) Karen Akers; and 4) Van Johnson.
