#8 is from "Sky Bride".  The boy is Robert Coogan, Jackie Coogan's little brother.  He played Sooky in both "Skippy" and the follow-up "Sooky" in the early 30's.  #9 is Jackie Searle.  He was also in both "Skippy" and "Sooky".  He generally played brats, as he did when he played Sidney Sawyer, Tom Sawyer's cousin, in early thirties versions of both "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn" with Jackie Coogan. 

I believe the man in #11 is a character actor named Harry Beresford.

#6 I believe that is Helen Hayes kneeling, and Marie Provost standing. The guy squatting is Cliff Edwards. The kid is probably Buster Phelps.

#10 Not sure who the kid is, but the other two are Anthony Bushell and Barbara Kent

I don't think that's her. Probably an extra, same for the waitress.

Sure looks like her to me.  Here's another still:

The woman with Joe E. Brown in #5 is a comedienne named Marjorie White.

In #7, I'm not sure of the woman on the left.  It may be Claudia Craddock, who is listed in the cast list .  I can't find a photo of her. The boy is Jackie Searle again.  This photo was probably taken about two years after the other one of him.  The woman next to Alison Skipworth is indeed familiar. That's Ethel Griffies.  She played the bird expert in the restaurant in Hitchcock's "The Birds".

    Do you remember her now?
