Posting some of O. Winston Link's photos in Off Topics, since this is related to movie history, it's better suited here.

 

Drive in at Iaeger, West Virginia, date August 2, 1956.  The movie is "Battle Taxi" (1955) on the screen.

A few days ago, Doc Kimble posted a photo taken at the White House.  This was the first stop of The Hollywood Victory Caravan.  it was taken on April 30, 1942.  A large band of Hollywood stars were organized to tour the country by train and put on shows in more than a dozen cities over a three week period.  All proceeds went to the Army and Navy Relief Funds.  First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt hosted a tea for the stars that first day.  If you had trouble identifying the stars, here is what I have found.
 
Hollywood-Victory-Caravan.jpg
The Hollywood Victory Caravan was a 3-week railroad journey of 1942 that brought performers across the US to raise money for war bonds. This photo was taken on April 30, 1942 at the White House on White House lawn with Hollywood Victory Caravan entertainers (seated, from left) Oliver Hardy, Joan Blondell, Charlotte Greenwood, Charles Boyer, Rise Stevens, Desi Arnaz, Frank McHugh, Matt Brooks (writer), James Cagney, Pat O’Brien, Juanita Stark, Alma Carroll; (standing, from left) Merle Oberon, Eleanor Powell, Arlene Whelan, Marie McDonald, Fay McKenzie, Katharine Booth, Mrs. Roosevelt, Frances Gifford, Frances Langford, Elyse Knox, Cary Grant, Claudette Colbert, Bob Hope, Ray Middleton, Joan Bennett, Bert Lahr, Mark Sandrich (director), Jack Rose (writer), Stan Laurel, Jerry Colonna, and Groucho Marx.
 
Bob Hope and Cary Grant served as emcees for the shows.  Not all of the stars could make the entire trip, but most did.  Bing Crosby and Olivia DeHavilland joined the tour a few days after it started.  After returning to Los Angeles, some of the stars made one last trip, to San Francisco, for a show on May 19th.  The tour played to packed houses in big arenas and made about $800,000 in 1942 dollars for the Relief Funds of the Army and Navy.


Excellent job!!!!

Natalie -- WB's last major film star under long-term contract
 
By this time Flynn had died. Rock Hudson was at Universal, and Hayward was not under contract to Warners. Aside from Wood these people were almost all from the many Warners TV programs of the time.


Oh... Well I tried.

I believe Dargo is right about John Van Dreelen

 

The man at the extreme left by Ray Danton (wrongly IDed as Roger Moore) is Peter Breck

 

I think the man by Sharon Hugueny is Chad Everett

 

Right on both counts I'd say, Doc.

Good recognitions here, Miles.

 

I believe your first "unknown" in the top picture in the back and between Lee Patterson and Donald May just might be actor John van Dreelen. You remember him. He often played spies or Nazis...

I recognized quite a few of them.  Angie Dickinson and Natalie Wood are on either side of Jack Warner.  The cowboy stars were easy, as well as the guys with the straw hats.  I did a little googling and here is what I found:   

 

wt83_wb-lot-2.jpg

(L-R) Roger Moore, Ray Danton (?), Lee Patterson, unknown, Donald May, Gary Vinson, Effrem Zimbalist Jr., Poncie Ponce, Robert Logan, Connie Stevens, Sammy Jackson, Peter Brown, Clint Walker, Margarita Sierra, Will Hutchins, unknown.

 

wt83_wb-lot-three.jpg

Max Baer Jr., Dorothy Provine, Rex Reason, John Russell, Peggie Castle, Bill Orr, Angie Dickinson, Anthony Eisley, Jack Warner, Jack Kelly, Natalie Wood, Andrew Duggan, Hugh Benson, Richard Long, Diane McBain, Robert Colbert, Edd Byrnes 

 

wt83_wb-lot-four.jpg

Unknown, Sharon Hugueny, Robert Conrad, Ty Hardin, Van Williams, Jacqueline Beer, Roger Smith, Louie Quinn, Troy Donahue, Joanna Barnes, Grant Williams, unknown, Peggy McKay, Arlene Howell, children unknown, Roger Moore.  

 

 

Hugh Benson was a writer and producer.  William Orr was the executive producer of Warner Bros. Television.  His name appeared on the credits for shows represented by the actors here.  They include:

 

Bourbon Street Beat

Sugarfoot

The Roaring Twenties

Maverick

Bronco

Lawman

Cheyenne

Surfside 6

Hawaiian Eye

77 Sunset Strip  

 

Roger Moore can't be on both ends of the same picture.  I'm thinking that the man on the extreme left may be James Best.  I can't be sure.

 looked a lot like Robert Webber in that photo, too.

 

It's not simply looks. In the Beverly Hillbillies pilot -- his only acting appearance I've seen -- he comes across as a college man, junior exec type, just like Juror #12. Although he's much more benign than Robert Webber -- more like an Ivy League Steve Dunne (if you even know who he was).

I think he'd be well-cast as Juror #12 in 12 Angry Men

 

Yep, I was thinkin' Robert Osborne there looked a lot like Robert Webber in that photo, too.

 

(...that was a shot of our own Bob O. there in younger days, wasn't it?!)
