Yes, this week’s mystery movie was “Crash Dive” with Tyrone Power, Anne Baxter and Dana Andrews.


And for Monday, these two young ladies are giving curious looks to our leading man and leading lady.

Tuesday’s mystery admiral is having a chat with our leading man, who is his nephew.

On Wednesday, our heroes get their picture on the front page. If you Google the headline (you know who you are) you will find a detailed critique of everything that is historically inaccurate about our mystery film. It’s pretty funny.

I’m always impressed by the knowledge of the Daily Mirror Brain Trust. Based on Tuesday’s mystery fellow, our mystery movie and cast were identified by Patrick, Julie Merholz, Mary Mallory, Jenny M and Herb Nichols. Congrats!


And for Thursday, we have a mystery chef.

Please congratulate Don Danard (mystery movie and cast), Mary Mallory (Wednesday’s mystery leading man), Valley Dave (mystery movie and cast), Mike Hawks (mystery movie and cast) and Floyd Thursby (mystery movie and Wednesday’s leading man).

For Friday, our leading lady has some explaining to do.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (Thursday’s mystery gent), Patrick (Thursday’s mystery gent), Don Danard (Thursday’s mystery gent), Dennis Gilliam (mystery movie and Thursday’s mystery gent), Mike Hawks (Thursday’s mystery gent) and Barbara Klein (mystery movie and Thursday’s mystery gent).

And to be complete here is Dana Andrews….

'Crash Dive'

And I thought I’d skip James Gleason, since he was a mystery guest two weeks ago in “Forty Naughty Girls.”

  1. Cal and Lulu says:

    This mystery photo thing is getting harder and harder. Who are we looking to identify, these two little girls or the stars who aren’t in the photo? If it is the two girls we can only take a WAG:
    Margaret O’Brien and Jane Withers.


  2. Cal and Lulu says:

    We can identify the train they are traveling on! It’s a studio special, (set that is)


  3. Rogét-L.A. says:

    Janis Wilson on the right?


  4. Don Danard says:

    Today’s Admiral is Art Baker, if I’m not mistaken.


  5. Patrick says:

    Tuesday = Minor Watson talking to Tyrone Power in “Crash Dive” from 1943.


  6. juliemerholz says:

    Crash Dive 1943, Monday Ruth Thomas, Betty McKinney, Tuesday Minor Watson, and…Tyrone Power, Ann Baxter,Dana Andrews, James Gleason,Dame May Whitty, Harry Morgan,Oliver Cromwell Jones.


  7. Mary Mallory says:

    This is Minor Watson and the film is CRASH DRIVE. A nice romantic triangle between our three stars.


  8. Jenny M says:

    Minor Watson in Crash Dive


  9. Jenny M says:

    The nephew is played by Tyrone Power.


  10. herb nichols says:

    minor watson in crash dive.also starring tyrone power and anne baxter


  11. Don Danard says:

    Ah! Today’s picture is from “Crash Dive” with Tyrone Power and that would make the Admiral from the other day Minor Watson. OK, so I peeked.


  12. Mary Mallory says:

    Tyrone Power and part of the sub crew.


  13. ValleyDave says:

    The movie is “Crash Dive” with Tyrone Power (in Wednesday’s newspaper) and Minor Watson as the Admiral (Tuesday’s mystery man). I don’t know who the young girls are in Monday’s picture.


  14. Mike Hawks says:

    Minor Watson for tuesday and for today part of the cast for CRASH DIVE 1943.


  15. Floyd Thursby says:

    Tyrone Power in “Crash Dive” for Wednesday.


  16. Patrick says:

    Thursday = Ben Carter


  17. Don Danard says:

    Ben Carter today.


  18. Today’s Navy Cook is Ben Carter. Although the IMDB cast list is problematic, I will go with Crash Dive, 1943, when Technicolor movies were still uncommon.


  19. Mike Hawks says:

    Ben Carter will prove to be a hero before the movie is over.


  20. Barbara Klein says:

    The movie is “Crash Dive.”

    Monday – Dorothy Brent and Sue Jolley
    Tuesday – Minor Watson
    Wednesday – Tyrone Power
    Thursday – Ben Carter


  21. Diane Ely says:

    Jesse White as the admiral?


  22. Patrick says:

    Friday = Anne Baxter and Tyrone Power.


  23. Gary Martin says:

    For the record: yes, I am embarrassed that it often takes me until Friday to “guess” correctly…oh, that I would “know”! Here we have Dana Andrews on the right and sweet little Eve Harrington looking over his shoulder…in that era they never looked one another in the eye? Why? Was it believed that it “looked” right? Odd that something so wrong reads as right.


  24. Gary Martin says:

    By the way: the other cast members, as per IMDB, are (Unlisted) …and it is a cast of hundreds!


  25. Gary Martin says:

    Not to forget the title:Crash Dive.


  26. Mike Hawks says:

    Anne Baxter is telling Tyrone Power that some day she will win an Oscar.


  27. Benito says:

    Friday’s gal is Ann Baxter talking to Tyrone Power, so this must be Crash Dive


  28. DeweyWebb says:

    Anne Baxter in CRASH DIVE


  29. LC says:

    Crash Dive 1943 w/ Minor Watson, Ben Carter, Anne Baxter & Tyrone Power.


  30. Patricia Ann says:

    Tyron Power & Anne Baxter —


  31. william says:

    Crash Dive 1943, Tyrone Power, anne Baxter


  32. Pam Fratus says:

    The little girl on the left is Sue Jolley – she was an extra in several movies during that time period. She is also my mom!!
