This week’s movie has been a double threat: A silent Western. It’s the 1928 Film Booking Offices of America movie “The Texas Tornado,” starring Tom Tyler (Friday’s mystery guest) and child star Frankie Darrow and his dog Beans (Thursday’s mystery guests).
I thought it would be fun to do a Pandro S. Berman movie this week and decided to pick this one, on which he was the film editor. It can only be found in a few fragments on YouTube, but apparently it’s one of the few surviving F.B.O. movies.
For Monday, we have a mystery woman wearing a tie.
Update: This is Nora Lane.
Here’s a better look at Monday’s mystery woman.
And for Tuesday, we have a man in a vest.
This is Frank Whitson.
And for Wednesday, we have a gent in a black hat.
This is Bob Burns.
This gent’s character is identified in the movie, but not in imdb, so I’m posting him as a bonus shot.
This man is unidentified.
Here is our mystery woman with another mystery gent – also not on imdb.
This man is also unidentified. I was hoping someone might recognize him.
And this mystery gent is making a phone call.
Please congratulate Mike Hawks for identifying Monday’s mystery woman. I think Mike even surprised himself on this one.
Here is Thursday’s mystery lad.
This is Frankie Darro.
And here is is again with a bit better detail.
And one more image of our mystery lad.
And here is his mystery dog.
This is Beans.
And for Friday, we have our mystery hero.
And this is Tom Tyler.
Please congratulate Mary Mallory (mystery movie, mystery lad and mystery woman) and Mike Hawks (mystery movie and mystery lad).
