This is “The Case of the Velvet Claws,” a 1936 Warner Bros. film starring Warren William as Perry Mason and Claire Dodd as Della Street, adapted by Tom Reed from Erle Stanley Gardner’s novel and directed by William Clemens. It was remade in the sixth season of the Perry Mason TV show. I’ll have to rummage through my Perry Mason discs to see if I have that episode, but I don’t recall ever seeing William Hopper in drag as Eddie Acuff was in the role of Spudsy Drake.
And for Monday, we have a mystery gent with a bow tie.
And you thought it was “taco Tuesday.” It’s actually mystery woman with a gun Tuesday.
Please congratulate Lee Ann, Megan and Thom, and Mike Hawks for identifying Monday’s mystery gent with the bow tie.
And for Wednesday, we have a mystery gent.
Tuesday’s mystery woman provided a pretty good clue.
Please congratulate Lee Ann, Megan and Thom (mystery movie and mystery woman), Julie Merholz (mystery movie and guests), Anne Papineau (mystery woman), Dewey Webb (mystery movie and guests), Don Danard (mystery movie and cast) and Bob Hansen (mystery woman).
I couldn’t resist running Monday’s mystery gent in this fetching outfit.
And for Thursday, two mystery folks.
Please congratulate Lee Ann, Megan and Thom (mystery movie), Julie Merholz (Wednesday’s mystery gent) and Don Danard (Wednesday’s mystery gent).
For Friday, just as everyone expected, we have … hey wait a minute. Who is she? Get her out of there.
This is Warren William from “The Match King.”
Oh har de har har. I suppose you think this is very funny.
Warren William and Eric Blore in “The Lone Wolf Strikes.”
Thank. You. Wiseguy.
Please congratulate LC (mystery movie and cast), Julie Merholz (Thursday’s mystery guests), William (mystery movie), Don Danard (Thursday’s mystery guests), Lee Ann, Megan and Thom (Wednesday’s and Thursday’s mystery guests), Mandy Marie (mystery movie and Thursday’s mystery guests) and Mary Mallory (Thursday’s mystery gent/wrong movie).
