This is “Holy Matrimony,” a rather silly movie with one of those preposterous plots in which logic is thrown out the window, but watchable because of the performances, especially if you only know Monty Woolley from “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” Eric Blore is wonderful as always, although he gets killed off early in the film. I was surprised that nobody pegged Gracie Fields. And look how young Whit Bissell was. This is his second film.

For Friday, our mystery chap has…. No wait, that’s the wrong movie. (Laird Cregar in “The Lodger,” his next to last film.)

For Friday, our mystery chap has… No, no, no. Can’t you see that’s in color? (Laird Cregar in “Heaven Can Wait.”)

Ah. That’s better.

For Friday, our mystery chap has a beard of the Van Dyke persuasion.

And because this was a short week, here’s a bit more facial hair from our mystery film:
