I spent a long while digging through the archives for this week’s mystery movie. I thought I had a good one and in fact I did – so good that we had already done it. So I rummaged around some more and found this week’s movie. Here is our mystery lady for Monday.

This is Marie Blake, who played Grandmama in “The Addams Family.”

And for Tuesday, we have Oh Him.

Please congratulate Rick (mystery movie and guest), Patrick (Monday’s mystery guest) and Patrice Roe ( Monday’s mystery guest).

This is Lionel Stander of the great, gravelly voice.

And for Thursday, we have this happy fellow. And yes, he’s in a color sequence.

This fellow isn’t identified on the film credits or IMDB. I suspect it may be Eddie Shipstad, one of the Ice Follies skaters, but I’m not positive.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (mystery movie, Monday’s mystery guest and mystery police officer) and Patrick (mystery police officer).

And for Friday, we have Goldie Hawn in “Cactus Flower.”

And Joan Crawford makes a rare appearance as a blond.

Please congratulate David Inman (mystery movie and Tuesday’s mystery guest), Julie Merholz (mystery movie and guests), Anne Papineau (mystery movie and Monday’s mystery guest), Mike Hawks (mystery movie and Monday’s and Wednesday’s mystery guests) and LC (mystery movie and Monday’s mystery guest).
