What!? Richard Barthelmess!? Bat MacPherson!?

Why I ... I never thought I'd see YOUR face again!

I'm gonna give you just one chance. One chance to

get out of here.

>Richard Barthelmess

 

Ha, ha, ha! Of course, of course! Once someone mentions the correct name, all of a sudden the picture looks just like the guy! But before the right name is mentioned, it looks like a dozen different guys! :)

How about this venerable gentleman? He died only a couple years ago, his career spanning the the majority of film history, even a little silents:

Sidney died in 1973. Depending on what was meant by ".. a couple of years ago",

that may disqualify the gentleman.

It means two, but I got it wrong. The pic is not of who I meant. The gentleman died a long time ago, and here is the pic of him:

Yes, "I'll Cry Tomorrow" was her story and Susan Hayward did an excellent Job. Perhaps Lillian Roth's best known movie is the Marx Brothers comedy "Animal Crackers", in which she plays Margaret Dumont's daughter. She sings a lovely song by Kalmar and Ruby that is in this clip.

 

 

 

I'm surprised that she didn't sing it with Zeppo.

 

One of my favorite Lillian Roth numbers is this one from "Take A Chance" with James Dunn. She does a sort of spoof of Mae West. I think it'll get your attention. I know it got mine.

I won't get into a debate about what's classic. But she does have relevance in a variety of ways. What I can't understand is how people figured it out. It looks nothing like her.

 

Oh, congrats, mockingbird13.

Here's another pic of the same unidentified lady previously posted.

The one with the famous son in the business. Here, she's posing

as a famous bathing beauty, but she's an actress.

Based upon the clues given earlier, my assumption is that the son is Buck Henry and, therefore, the lady in the picture is Ruth Taylor.
