I was going to take the mystery photos dark this week as I’ve been traveling and unable to preview a mystery movie. But I decided to run this historic photo for the week.
Brain Trust roll call: Mary Mallory has identified our mysterious motorman.
Update: This is a behind the scenes shot from filming the 1927 Fox film Is Zat So? directed by Alfred E. Green. For this sequence, Fox borrowed a streetcar and built an exterior set at Fox Hills. Read more in the Pacific Electric Magazine for April 1927. The film is apparently lost.
