And for Tuesday, a mystery gent.

Please congratulate Mark Alan Vieira (mystery actress and mystery film series), Don Danard (mystery actress), Megan (mystery movie and mystery actress), Mike Hawks (mystery actress, mystery studio and mystery film series) and Bob Hansen (mystery actress and two of her better known films).

Movieland Mystery Photo Hint Hotline: If you would like a hint, email me. (This is new and in response to comments in the readers survey from those are frustrated by a week of unidentified people).

And here we have a couple of mystery folks.

Please congratulate Don Danard (mystery movie and cast), Megan (mystery fellow) and Mary Mallory (wrong actress, right movie series).

And for Thursday, a mystery taxi driver (her cap says “Yellow Cab,” although it’s a bit hard to see in this image). This is one of the few shots of her without our leading man and I’m saving him for tomorrow.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (mystery movie and cast), Gary Martin (mystery movie and cast), Dennis Gilliam (mystery movie and partial cast), Don Danard (Wednesday’s mystery folks), Mike Hawks (mystery movie and cast), Floyd Thursby (Wednesday’s mystery fellow), Megan (Wednesday’s mystery folks), Julie Merholz (Wednesday’s mystery chap, but wrong movie series),  Patrick (mystery movie and cast),  Michael Ryerson (Wednesday’s mystery folks).

If you can’t stand the suspense, email me and I’ll tell you the title.

And for Friday, a mysterious (or not) couple.

Please congratulate Patrick (Thursday’s mystery cabdriver), Mary Mallory (mystery cabdriver), Michael Ryerson (mystery movie and cabdriver) who notes “In my mind’s eye I frequently get her stills confused with Wendy Barrie”), Keith Thursby (Wednesday’s mystery folks), Don Danard (mystery cabdriver) who notes “One of my faves,” Julie Merholz (mystery movie and cast), Valle Dave (Monday’s mystery woman and film series), Mike Hawks, who comments: “XXX says ‘Taxi, Mister’ “), LC (mystery movie and cast), Rick (mystery movie and cast), Bob Hansen (Wednesday’s mystery folks), Barbara Klein (mystery movie and cast) and Rick Scott (Wednesday’s mystery woman and Thursday’s mystery cabdriver).

Congrats, everybody!

  2. My first inclination is Audrey Totter.

  3. It’s Jean Brooks, but the photo’s not from Leopard Man or The Seventh Victim. I know her face because I became fascinated by those Val Lewton films in the 80s, even though I’d seen them on KPIX in San Francisco twenty years earlier. I guess you have to be an adult to “get” Val Lewton. She really makes them work. She and Katherine Emery, among others.

    OK. You say it is a series…film. So the Young Barbara Hale and Sheldon Leonard would peg it as Falcon …and with Useff Ali on a cheesy set, it must be Falcon In Hollywood …with, Monday, Jean Brooks and …I hope…by Saturday a lovely shot of my fav…Veda Ann Borg.

  25. Since this is from a series, I’ll go with “The Falcon in Hollywood”. Monday: Veda Ann Borg. Tuesday: Perhaps Useff Ali. Wednesday’s couple: Barbara Hale and future TV producer Sheldon Leonard.
