    I typed all this in last night but I guess it didn’t get posted. Ugh. Here it is again: Movie – Night Train to Munich, Monday – Ian Fleming, Tuesday – John Wengraf, Wednesday – Raymond Huntley, Thursday – Basil Radford & Naunton Wayne.


  20. Monday………………Ian Fleming
    Wednesday Raymond Huntley
    Thursday Basil Radford & Naunton Wayne

    Movie Night Train To Zurich.


  21. Floyd Thursby says:

    This is “Night Train to Munich.” Mr. Monday is Ian Fleming and the Thursday gentlemen are Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne.


  22. SylviaE says:

    Thank goodness for one of my favorite movies, which while NOT your mystery movie this week, was very helpful in helping me to ID Thursday’s folks: 1938’s “The Lady Vanishes”. Thursday’s mystery gents (Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne) have several of the great moments in that film.

    I’m now working on what this week’s mystery movie is (they appeared in a LOT of films together.)


  23. SylviaE says:

    Now I’m thinking the movie is indeed The Lady Vanishes 1938. So changing my earlier guess that TLV is not the movie, but that TLV is the film and that I only need to work on the cast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.


  24. Mary Mallory says:

    NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH. Monday originally looked like William Faulkner but it’s Ian Fleming. John Wengraf and Allan Jeayes Tuesday, Frederick Valk yesterday, and Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne today.


  25. SylviaE says:

    Ha! Guess number 3 (all in one day!)

    I was right the first time – the movie is NOT The Lady Vanishes.

    The movie is Night Train to Munich 1940
    Monday’s guy is Ian Fleming
    Still on the hunt for the cast for Tuesday and Wednesday.
    Right about the Thursday cast, though, Mr. Radford and Mr. Wayne (delightful in the Lady Vanishes.)


  26. SylviaE says:

    …to continue on Night Train:
    Tuesday’s doctor is John Wengraf, I think. Not sure about the prisoners.
    Wednesday is Raymond Huntley, I think.

    Looking forward to Friday’s stars (with very young faces) and Saturday’s breakdown.


  27. Howard Mandelbaum says:

    James Harcourt, Margaret Lockwood; Rex Harrison, Paul Henreid, billed as Paul von Hernried.


  28. Chrisbo says:

    Wish I’d checked yesterday, I would’ve recognized Radford and Wayne in Night Train to Munich.


  29. MIKE HAWKS says:

    Margaret Lockwood, Rex Harrison and Paul Henreid.


  30. Mary Mallory says:

    Today it’s Felix Aylmer, Margaret Lockwood, Rex Harrison, and Paul Henreid.

  33. Sue Slutzky says:

    Friday – James Harcourt, Margaret Lockwood, Rex Harrison, and Paul Henreid.


  34. Sylvia E says:

    Friday – James Harcourt and Margaret Lockwood
    (baby faced duo) Rex Harrison and Paul Henreid (Henreid is also the ‘off camera’ prisoner to screen right, in Tuesday’s image.)
