For Wednesday, we have a mystery couple. They approve of such goings-on. In later films, our friend with the bow tie and glasses will be much less studious and more rakish — the cad!

Update: This is John Halliday, more familiar as Tracy Lord’s philandering father in “The Philadelphia Story,” and Aileen Pringle.

Brain Trust roll call: Howard Mandelbaum (mystery movie and Monday’s and Tuesday’s mystery guests) and Lee Ann, Thom and Megan (Tuesday’s mystery guest).
