1. Image "Mystery" Solved 2. I'm Clueless

PostMon Jan 30, 2017 12:08 pm

Who is this? Is this my father? Or, more likely, a film notable?
My brain is clogged with too much popcorn to come up with a name for this familiar face.
Won't you help me?

Thanks to both of you.
Soon, I won't be able to identify Buster Keaton.
To show you how far my eyes/brain have declined,
I was Google Image searching photos of a young Skeets Gallagher.
There might not have even been a young Skeets Gallagher, but,
if I'd been correct in my identification, it would have made the photographer
a Skeets shooter.

Yes, it's Wallace Reid, but the pose and the bathrobe (and book) at first made me think: "F. Scott Fitzgerald!"

Same part in the slicked-down hair!
