Looks to me like Walter Huston behind the mustache in #3. 1202 corresponds to THE LADY LIES, 1929, in the still code list on Bruce Calvert's site.

It looks like Lynne Overman in the still with Walter Huston.

UI 420.......could UI be for Under the Influence?? Did Sidney Drew ever do comic character roles like that?? Reason I ask if it's him is that the chap has some sort of raised scar/vein on his hand just back from the knuckles of the first two fingers.....and so did Sidney.

Thank you so much for the great ID information. Here is another photo I am working on:

I know the female is Clara Kimball Young, but not the actor next to her or the film. A friend thinks it is Elliott Dexter, I am not sure. There are no film codes on the photo or markings on the back.

Please let me know if you recognize the scene or actor. Thanks! Kay
