And for Friday…..

Please congratulate Mary Mallory, Julie Merholz and Dewey Webb for identifying our mystery movie and cast.

Thursday’s mystery fellow has been identified by Don Danard (plus Wednesday’s mystery woman), Dennis Gilliam, Greg Clancey, LC, Mike Hawks, Dan Nather, Sarah and Chrisbo.

Special note:  Tuesday’s mystery fellow does indeed play piano in the movie. But the “back of the head” guy in Wednesday’s photo is someone else.

"Four Jacks and a Jill"

With one more picture. Get a load of the very young Desi Arnaz!

"Four Jacks and a Jill"

And a little jitterbugging….

    Monday’s gent isn’t Burt Lancaster or Kirk Douglas, but I got a feeling he’s another one of those angular handsome guys who got their start in 40s noir. As for Tuesday’s gent, the crazy little man deep inside me says Franchot Tone . . .
