9) Irving Thalberg's wife Norma Shearer surrounded by two co-stars from her movie A Free Soul- -

Leslie Howard and Lionel Barrymore.( I'm guessing the partially obscured lady on Lionel's arm is his wife Irene Fenwick).

Gary Cooper is there in the middle but he wasn't in the movie. LOL

Circa pre-code 1931-32

Eight) I bet this is a masquerade party at San Simeon hosted by William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies. And that would be the hostess to the right with Claudette Colbert.

Circa  1936

This one I'm sure it's 1925.

4) Clara Bow who had IT  and IT had her.

You're batting a thousand!  Do you recognize the actor with Ms Bow?

No, I don't know much about silent movies. But I took a course in grad school and I think I've shot my wad here. LOL

Thanks for putting up this terrific New Year's Eve question.

Princess did a great job.  I think I can help with a few more.

#1  Helping to ring in 1932 is Thelma Todd.  She was nicknamed "Hot Toddy".

#2  This is the lovely Leila Hyams.  You may remember her from the movie "Freaks".

Image result for leila hyams freaks 

#3 is none other than Tina Louise.  You know her as Ginger from "Gilligan's Island".

#5 would be dancer Vera-Ellen in her pre-anorexic days.

#6 sure looks like Bonita Granville about the time she was making her Nancy Drew movies.

#7 is, I believe, Gene Tierney. 

#10 looks like Martha Hyer.  Right before Christmas I saw her in "Night Of The Grizzly" with Clint Walker. 

#11  The cute blonde actress with big eyes from 1929 looks like Alice White.

#14 is MGM starlet Ann Rutherford.

 

The others are tougher.  #12 looks like a young, blonde Lucille Ball on the right.  She was quite blonde in many of her pictures in the mid-1930's.  I didn't recognize the woman on the left, but using Google Images and phrases like "Hollywood Actresses In New Years Pin-ups", I found the photo.  The other actress is Billie Seward, who was in some "B" movies and westerns in the thirties.  

A similar search turned up #13.  That's a young, pre-blonde Diana Dors who, strangely enough, was in a 1948 movie called "The Calendar".

and that wraps it up!! 

for the record, the actor with Clara Bow is Richard Dix, and the fellow with Gene Tierney is Howard Hughes, before his 'I want to be alone' days.

no id on this one (just new year, 1956) but doesn't this look like Dirk Bogarde and Kay Kendall?  Photo: Alfred Eistenstaedt  for Life Magazine. 1956 New Year's Eve Party

Kudos to Princess of Tap and MilesArcher who I'm sure will be celebrating their victory!

These photos are publicity shots for various movies.  Some will be easy, some maybe not so much.  Can you identify not only all of the people in the photo, but also the movie that they are making?

If you can't solve #10 then you probably don't belong on these boards.

 

Here's a bonus shot.  This is not from "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?".

 There's no doubt that Lavender and Shutoo really know their stuff.  All are correct so far, including #11.  Yes, Joan was set to co-star with Bette again, but they did not get along and Joan left the picture and was replaced by Olivia de Havilland.

#7 is still unsolved.  The man on the left was only about twenty-two when he made this movie.  The woman was already a veteran of more than fifteen years of movie making, the previous four or five as a top star.

I've said this before, but I'll say it again, if you showed these pictures to a  hundred random people on the street, how many would be able to identify everyone, let alone name the movies?  I suspect not many at all.

Very good, Lav.  Now we have them all.  Thanks to Lavenderblue and Shutoo for identifying them.  Lavender doesn't post photos, so Shutoo gets to post next.

2. Ann Sheridan Fan Club

3. DOROTHY ADAMS est une actrice américaine, née le 8 janvier 1900 à Hannah, Dakota du Nord, morte le 16 mars 1988 à Los Angeles, Quartier de Woodland Hills (Californie). Elle contribue à près de cent films américains (dont des westerns) entre 1938 et 1960, comme second rôle de caractère.

5. Gloria Swanson, WAYYY before she was ready for her closeup. By the way: the Blu-Ray of Sunset Boulevard just came out and they did an AWESOME job of cleaning it up. Looks like it was shot yesterday...

8. Nancy Carroll (I) (1903â1965) Actress.... Nancy made her film debut in 1927 after several years on the musical stage and later on Broadway.

This red headed cupid-bow mouthed star entertained movie audiences during the 1930s where her singing and dancing abilities gained her a large following of fans. #ZackWomenSFashion
