This week’s mystery movie has been the 1934 Universal film “One More River,” starring Diana Wynyard, Frank Lawton, Colin Clive and Mrs. Patrick Campbell. It was directed by James Whale with a script by R.C. Sherriff, adapted from the novel by John Galsworthy. Art direction was by Charles D. Hall, photography by John J. Mescall and music by W. Franke Harling. Special effects by John P. Fulton and edited by Ted Kent.
For Monday, we have a mystery woman.
This is Mrs. Patrick Campbell, who she only appeared in six films, the last in 1935. But that was no obstacle to the Daily Mirror’s Brain Trust.
And for today, it’s a mystery chap in a newsboy cap and wing collar. Don’t see that too often, eh?
Even a newsboy cap and goggles can’t hide the fact that this is Snub Pollard.
Please congratulate Howard Mandelbaum (Monday’s mystery woman), Stanhope1929 (mystery movie and mystery cast) and Dan Nather (Monday’s mystery woman). Most impressive!
And for Wednesday, a dapper mystery chap.
E.E. Clive, who also appeared in Whale’s “The Invisible Man” and “Bride of Frankenstein,” and many Bulldog Drummond films.
Please congratulate Mary Mallory for identifying Tuesday’s mystery fellow.
And for Thursday, who can spot the mystery director making a cameo appearance in this shot? I’m told that his lines in this scene are the only existing recording of his voice.
On the right, Whale, who makes a cameo in this scene at the 20:38 mark, calling for three cheers for David Dornford (Reginald Denny, center).
Please congratulate Floyd Thursby (mystery movie/wrong mystery guest), Dan Nather (mystery movie, Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s mystery guests), Stanhope1929 (Wednesday’s mystery chap) and Lee Ann, Megan and Thom (Wednesday’s mystery chap).
And for Friday, we have the mysterious leads of our mystery movie.
This is Shelley Duvall and Robin Williams in “Popeye.” OK, it’s Diana Wynyard and Frank Lawton.
Please congratulate Anne Papineau (mystery movie, mystery director, mystery guests), Stanhope1929 (mystery movie, mystery director), Lee Ann, Megan and Thom (Thursday’s mystery guest), Mary Mallory (mystery movie, mystery director and mystery guests) and LC (mystery movie, mystery directory and mystery guests).
