GUESS WHO?

Recommended Posts

No more guesses? 

The man in #1 starred in a TV western series in the 1950's.  He later played Tarzan in some sixties movies.  He was the stepfather of the little girl in the photo.  She would grow up to win two best actress Oscars.

The three men in #5 were comic actors.  Their version of "The Three Musketeers" was a comedy.

 

#1) Jock Mahoney was Yancy Derringer and his stepdaughter was Sally Fields.

#5) They're obviously the Ritz Brothers and I was just waiting to name them after I got over the headache they always give me. LOL

Yes, Princess.  Sally Field's mother, Margaret Field, was an actress as well.  The boy pictured is Sally's brother Richard Field.  The Ritz brothers, Harry, Al, and Jimmy, came along at a time when the Marx brothers and Three Stooges were popular, and they paled by comparison.  They starred in "The Three Musketeers" with Don Ameche.

The thread is open.

If you have been watching TCM on Saturday mornings for the last few months, you should recognize the actors in these photos.  They starred in westerns, serials, and mystery movies that were shown then.  Can you name them?

Some should be easy, some not so easy.  The first four starred in westerns, the next four in serials, and the last four in mysteries.

Princess, you are correct with George Sanders, his brother Tom Conway, Warren William, and Buster Crabbe.  #8 is not Allan "Rocky" Lane.  This actor is the most unknown of the group.  He starred in a 30's serial as an airplane pilot battling smugglers in South America.  Noah Beery Jr. played his sidekick and mechanic.

Shutoo is correct with Donald Woods.  He took over the role of Perry Mason from Warren William in "The Case Of The Stuttering Bishop".

Apparently, not many here have been watching TCM on Saturday mornings.  It's a shame, because they have missed some real fast paced entertainment.

#1 was billed as "The Singing Cowboy" at Warner Bros. in the thirties, but he was in many other movies, including "The Petrified Forest".

 #2 came along at the tail end of the "B" movie westerns.  He was cast because he bore a resemblance to Buck Jones, who had perished in the Cocoanut Grove fire.  He had the same gimmick as Lash LaRue, subduing bad guys with a whip.

#3 had his own western movie series from the early thirties until the early forties.  He was afraid of being typecast, so he changed his name to Richard Powers and appeared in all sorts of movies, like "San Quentin" and "Crossfire".  In the fifties he appeared in many TV shows.

#4 is very well known.  He had a long series of western movies, but he appeared in many other types of films, including "Hitler's Children" and "Stella Dallas".

#6 was the first "Lucky Jenkins" in the Hopalong Cassidy movies.  He is the star of the serial that is currently running on Saturdays on TCM.

#7 starred in a serial as a crime fighting magician.  It was based on a popular comic strip of the day.

Very good, Lavender.  That leaves only #2 and #8.  They both are very much unknown today.  #2 is Whip Wilson.  He made a bunch of westerns from the mid-1940's until the early 1950's.  #8 is Clark Williams, who starred in "Tailspin Tommy In The Great Air Mystery", a serial shown on TCM a few months ago.

Princess and Lavender don't post photos, so I'll leave the thread to Shutoo or Det. Jim McLeod.

I think if that guy were wearing glasses he would be easier to identify.

With a clue like that, it must be Harold Lloyd.

even without a clue like that, it must be. Princess of Tap and Lavenderblue both got 4 correct, so they can share the 'champion's beach umbrella'  Related image
