The fellow in the dark suit in photo no. 1 is Ralph Byrd, who was famous for portraying comic strip hero Dick Tracy in movies and TV shows.  However, I believe this still is from one of his early serials "S O S Coast Guard" from 1937.  I found this photo from the movie serial.  I believe the stripes and insignia on the sleeve match in the two photos.

 

 

The actress is Maxine Doyle.  Bela Lugosi played the villain. 

 

thought that was Ralph Byrd! I couldn't find any photos to match up with it, though. 

 

Good job, Miles.

#1 is Keir Dullea's father on the left, Aaron Eckhart's father on the right.

 

#2 is a rare still of the little-known older brother of Gene Kelly, comic actor Ralph "Spatzo" Kelly, whose catchphrase "Forget this! I'm goin' out tha window!" never really caught on, so he retired from films and opened a pet grooming business.

 

(In actuality, I have no idea, and am interested in the correct answer myself)

hello again,

I have two photographs that have ID numbers in the lower right corners.  However, I do not recognize the actors so it is difficult to decide the film title. any ideas? thanks!
