And for Monday, we have a mystery gent who is reading – or at least holding – a newspaper.

This is Albert Dannibal in one of his two screen appearances. He also had the lead in a revival of the play “Stalag 17,” but otherwise I can’t find much about him. He bears some resemblance to Albert D’Annibale.

  55. ValleyDave says:

    I would say the “Albert D’Annibale” mentioned by Larry bears more than a passing
    resemblance to the “Albert Dannibal” credited in this film.
    Here is a link to the wedding announcement for Christopher D’Annibale, son of Albert.
    Note the strong likeness in the picture :


  56. It’s worth mentioning that playwright Michael V. Gazzo later gained fame as an actor: he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role as Frank Pentangeli in The Godfather Part II, but lost to Robert de Niro.


  57. Benito says:

    I guessed Wednesday’s gent was Jack Webb or Yves Montand. Lloyd Nolan would be flattered.
