PostFri Oct 09, 2015 8:34 pm

Hello All:

I am hoping some of you might enjoy looking at this vintage stills and maybe you might know the actors and/or the film titles of these photos. Thanks!

8 and 9 I think are Hobart Bosworth and Bessie Love in the Sea Lion.

In number 1 the two men are Tom Mix on the right and Raymond Hatton on the left.

In number 5 the two gentlemen are Roland Young in the foreground and Hobart Bosworth in the background.

In number 11 I'm pretty sure the woman is Lois Wilson.

Number 12 I believe is Viola Dana.

I don't know what movies these are from.

Are you sure that's Buck Jones? Judging from the hair and clothes of the young lady (whoever she is) this must be from mid to late 1920s, and I am not aware of any movie Jones was in with Raymond Hatton until the 1940s. If it is Jones it must be from one of the movies he did with Mix for Fox in the '20s.

I believe #1 is Buck Jones too. It looks like it says Van Dyke, but I can't see the number. It means it's a Fox Van Dyke directed film, and whatever the number after it is that number of films he had directed for the studio. Match that up with the star.

#2 is either Matt Moore or House Peters.

#5 is Albert Conti with the mustache, not Hobart Bosworth.

#6 is Zander the Great with Marion Davies.

#8 and #9 are Hobart Bosworth and Bessie Love, the Sea Lion.

#12 Does look like Viola Dana.

Definitely Buck Jones. Van Dyke-6- is a Fox still code, for W. S. Van Dyke, II, and Van Dyke never directed Tom Mix, but did direct a number of Fox Buck Jones pictures.

Agree that Roland Young is the man in the foreground, but it is not Hobart Bosworth in the background. Looks more like William B. Davidson, or Richard Tucker, though I'm not certain.

3979 (the guy with the letter and the butler) is a Universal titled "The Victor" (1923), although neither of the guys in the picture match any of the credited actors, so I can't tell you who the two might be.

Update. As noted on SCM I misread the code 3977 as 3979. It is THE ACQUITTAL, not THE VICTOR.

Van Dyke-6- is from HEARTS AND SPURS (Fox, 1925). Buck Jones is on the right, and I believe the other two L-R are Jean La Motte and J. Gordon Russell

I believe # 10 with the code C-3- is from BUCKING THE BARRIER (Fox, 1923) starring Dustin Farnum
