Unidentifieds

PostTue Jan 15, 2013 2:01 pm

I have thousands of still and photos that are unidentified. These two are probably easy. I have stills with multiple people in them, and will post them later. Thanks for any help on identity!

Mystery SOLVED! After much!!!! research, I found that I have a large number of stills for "Spangles" from 1926. J Emmett Beck was in it, and it was written by Leah Baird. Directed by Frank O Conner, and starred Marion Nixon,Hobart Bosworth, Pat O'Malley, Gladys Brockwell, Jack Milford and many more. It looks as if it was a pretty funny comedy, with all sorts of varied circus acts, bearded lady, fat lady, half wits, etc.

I though the last still might be from SPANGLES, but I got sidetracked and forgot about this thread before I could go and make sure. I have a print of SPANGLES, and I hate to tell you, but it's way more of a melodrama than a comedy. It is a really good circus picture, with Gladys Brockwell giving a great performance as Marian Nixon's mother, Mademoiselle Dazie.

The man in the proof picture with glasses I think is Mack Sennett.
