Fast Company
This week’s mystery movie is “Fast Company,” a 1938 MGM film written by Marco Page (Harry Kurnitz) and Harold Tarshis from a book by Page, directed by Edward Buzzell and photographed by Clyde Devinna.

And for Wednesday, a couple of semi-familiar mystery gentlemen.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (mystery movie and mystery guests via email) Patrick (Tuesday’s mystery gent),  Jenny M (Tuesday’s mystery gent), Benito (Tuesday’s mystery gent/wrong movie — although we are big fans of that film), Anne Papineau (Tuesday’s mystery gent), Lee Ann, Megan and Thom, who admire our mystery gent’s hairstyle, Herb Nichols (Tuesday’s mystery gent), Gary Martin (mystery movie and Tuesday’s mystery gent), dlhartzog (Tuesday’s mystery gent), Don Danard (Tuesday’s mystery gent), Barbara Klein (Tuesday’s mystery gent/wrong movie), Rick Scott (Tuesday’s mystery gent), Sarah (Tuesday’s mystery gent), LC (Tuesday’s mystery gent) and Valley Dave (Tuesday’s mystery gent)

Gary Martin says: for Tuesday, XXXXX, with whom i once had the pleasure of working on an After School special (along with Theresa Wright.). He also did tons of theatre in NYC in my day.

And for Thursday,  a mystery woman, who is giving an olive rather a bad time.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (Wednesday’s mystery baddies), Patrick (mystery movie and guests), Lee Ann, Megan and Thom (mystery movies and baddies),  Gary Martin (Wednesday’s mystery baddies), Benito (mystery movie and mystery baddies), Pamela Brinson Porter (Tuesdays mystery gent/wrong movie), Don Danard (Wednesday’s mystery baddies), dlhartzog (one of Wednesday’s baddies), Rick Scott (Wednesday’s mystery baddies), LC (mystery movie and guests) and ValleyDave (mystery movie and guests).

LC notes that TCM just aired this for XXXXX’s day, which I overlooked. As you may recall, I try to impose at least a one-year embargo on movies that have been on TCM, but sometimes a movie slips through.

And for Friday, two non-mystery gentlemen.

Please congratulate Patrick (Thursday’s mystery woman) and Julie Merholz (mystery movie and Tuesday’s mystery gent).

    Suggestion: After a reasonable amount of time, you determine when that is. How about letting your readers know the Identity of the mystery folks. I will never get this one. But I always want to know/learn who they are. Your thoughts?

      When I moderate comments, I post the wrong answers immediately, then post the comments with correct answers on Saturday.

        I know you use that system, but it takes a long time to get to the solutions and I tend to think other than some die-hearts, you loose readers who forget to come back through all their blogs and look on Sat when you have the reveal. Just saying, it might be able to have a tad bit of tweaking to the ‘system.’

      I agree. I have given up following your mystery folks, as I never see their identity revealed, only the wrong guesses.

        He can’t reveal the names, or that defeats the whole purpose, since it’s easy enough to look up and figure out the movie. It’s not supposed to be spoonfed to us.
