  1. Mary Mallory says:

    Is this from a Vitaphone short? The Stroh Violin was used in 1920s dance bands. I’ve occasionally seen 1920s bands here in LA use it.


  2. Mary Mallory says:

    This isn’t still from SPIES, is it? I assumed it was something different, since you listed it as mystery photo, and had the link to a previous game.


  3. Jeff says:

    In the third picture, the guy in the middle is George E. (a/k/a Georgie) Stone. Which would make this any one of about 10 features he was in between 1928 and 1930.


  4. dewey webb says:

    Monday: guy on left looks like George E. Stone


  5. Mike Hawks says:

    The lady is Marie Prevost with George E. Stone from THE RACKET 1928.


  6. Mary Mallory says:

    It’s Phyllis Haver I believe, with George E. Stone on the left, probably from Chicago.


  7. Mary Mallory says:

    Not Phyllis Haver, and I think it’s from THE RACKET.


  8. Mary Mallory says:

    It’s Marie Prevost.


  9. Rick Scott says:

    Thin fellow with pencil-thin mustache is George E. Stone. Could the lady be Texas Guinon?


  10. dewey webb says:

    The Racket (blonde might be Marie Prevost)


  11. Mary Mallory says:

    She’s with Louis Wolheim today.


  12. Mary Mallory says:

    Which means, if he’s today, then Thomas Meighan is tomorrow.


  13. Benito says:

    In photo 4, the bulldog profiled gent seated at left is Louis Wolheim, best known as the German sergeant in All Quiet On The Western Front.


  14. gary martin says:

    That certainly looks like the very young Mischa Auer with the shrimp cocktail.


  15. gary martin says:

    I grew up on Betty Hutton bio pix but I’m uncertain if this is Blossom Seeley, Pauline White, Texas Guinan, or none of the above.


  16. Rick Scott says:

    Gent on the left is Louis Wolheim, the lady is Marie Provost, the film is “The Racket.”


  17. gary martin says:

    Okay, then it might be Mischa’s twin brother George E. Stone, later the rat in Some Like it Hot.


  18. Mike Hawks says:

    The man for tuesday is Louis Wolheim.


  19. gary martin says:

    Well, finally remembering the name of Louis Wolheim and seeing William (James?) Frawley, how about Phyllis Haver in The Shady Lady?


  20. Grant Lockhart says:

    Marie Prevost, George E. Stone, Louis Wolheim and Thomas Meighan in THE RACKET (1928)


  21. Mike Hawks says:

    And today our star, Thomas Meighan.


  22. LC says:

    Movie is The Racket (1928) with Louis Wolheim, Marie Provost, and George Stone.


  23. Stacia says:

    I should have been here sooner: This is The Racket (1928), one of my favorite films.

    No idea who the band in the first pic is, but that’s the back of Thomas Meighan. Second is Marie Prevost. Third is Marie, George E. Stone and one of the henchmen, but I don’t know the actor. Maybe Jack Perry? Fourth is Louis Wolheim, Marie, George. Fifth is Wolheim and I think Sam De Grasse. Last is Wolheim and Marie.

    You need a pic with Skeets Gallagher in it for tomorrow!


  24. Rick says:

    is this the 1927 silent version of Chicago


  25. Mike Hawks says:

    Today we have John Darrow on the right.


  26. gary martin says:

    I guess this is The Racket with George and Louis and Marie Prevost, 1928. Never saw it but it seems to be the only film Louis and George did together.
