And for Wednesday, we have Oh … Her. It’s too bad she never teamed up with Edgar Kennedy, they could have spent the entire picture doing slow burns at one another. At least I don’t recall them ever teaming up.

Please congratulate Patrick for identifying our mystery movie and cast.

Please congratulate Sarah (Wednesday’s mystery woman), Patrick (Wednesday’s mystery woman), Don Danard (Wednesday’s mystery woman), Mike Hawks (mystery movie and cast), LC (Wednesday’s mystery woman) and Floyd Thursby (Wednesday’s mystery woman).

If you would like a hint, email me.

    The object at the bottom of the door is the hinge: it is a swinging door likely into the kitchen.


  8. Patrick says:

    Monday = Ray Mayer, Tuesday = Maurice Moscovitch (I just watched “The Great Dictator” yesterday in which he played Mr. Jaeckel). The film is “Make Way for Tomorrow” from 1937.

  10. Patrick says:

    Wednesday = Minna Gombell

    Now I’m sure of the movie, it’s Make Way for Tomorrow (1937) with Gombell, Ray Mayer, Maurice Moscovitch, and Porter Hall .
