This week’s mystery movie was “History is Made at Night,” a 1937 Walter Wanger production released through United Artists starring Charles Boyer and Jean Arthur (Friday’s mystery guests). It also featured Leo Carrillo (Thursday’s mystery guest) and Colin Clive (Wednesday’s mystery guest), and was directed by Frank Borzage from a screenplay by Gene Towne and Graham Baker, with additional dialogue by Vincent Lawrence and David Hertz.

For Monday, we have a dignified gent.

Update: This is William Stack.

You are going to say Senor Wences. You will be wrong. S’awright? S’awright! Close the box.

Update: This is the hand of Charles Boyer. I’ll be doing a separate post about “History Is Made at Night” and Senor Wences.

Please congratulate Stanhope1929 for identifying our mystery movie and guest.

Just to clarify on yesterday’s mystery guest. IMDB erroneously gives credit to our old friend Senor Wences. This screen grab clearly shows that it’s our mystery leading man, whom we will see Friday.

Please congratulate Howard Mandelbaum for identifying our mystery movie and our mystery guests.

And for Wednesday, we have a somewhat troubled mystery gent.

Update: This is Colin Clive.

Leo Carrillo.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (Wednesday’s mystery guest/wrong movie), Julie Merholz (mystery movie and cast), Mike Hawks (mystery movie and Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s mystery guests), Barbara Klein (mystery movie and Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s mystery guests), Anne Papineau (mystery movie and mystery guests), Don Danard (Wednesday’s mystery gent) and Jenny M (Wednesday’s mystery gent).

This is Jean Arthur.

And our equally non-mysterious leading man.

This is Charles Boyer.

Please congratulate Mary Mallory (mystery movie and Thursday’s mystery guest), David Inman (mystery movie and Wednesday’s and Thursday’s mystery guests), William (mystery movie and Thursday’s mystery guest), Don Danard (Thursday’s mystery guest), Mike Hawks (Thursday’s mystery guest), Barbara Klein (Thursday’s mystery guest), Floyd Thursby (mystery movie and Wednesday’s and Thursday’s mystery guests), ValleyDave (mystery movie and Wednesday’s and Thursday’s mystery guests) and Ed (Thursday’s mystery guest).

    I’ve been thinking about the Wences reference on IMDB. Perhaps he only advised on the movie or perhaps IMDB got it wrong.

    Have you had comments the mystery has been too hard lately, and that’s why so easy on Wednesday and Thursday? Leo Carrillo today, so HISTORY IS MADE AT NIGHT with Charles Boyer as the leading man. It will be playing soon at the UCLA Film and TV Archive.

    Wednesday is Colin Clive and Thursday’s man is Leo Carrillo, and therefore my guess at the movie is “History Is Made at Night.”

    “History is Made at Night” 1937, today=Leo Carrillo. Also I found a site with info on this film’s director, Frank Borzage that alleges Senor Wences is in fact the ventriloquist in this movie. FWIW.

    ( “Señor Wences was indeed an uncredited contributor to the film, according to the filmography appended in Hervé Dumont’s Frank Borzage: The Life and Films of a Hollywood Romantic, Jefferson, North Carolina, McFarland & Co., 2006, p. 379.”)
