For an instance she looked a tad like Pauline Garon, but her hair's too blonde.

She looks like Dorothy Mackaill to me.

Yeah, I think both of you are correct now that I think about it...

The hair definitely looks right. You guys amaze me. Looking through both of your suggestions filmographys on imdb though, didnt really give me any obvious hits on this film as I hoped it would. I have some other people from the film like tgis guy to post for a cross reference, but I am not sure if I am posting them correctly. It wouldn't let me post them right on this site. The only way I can find to do it was by sharing from my Google drive like this.

If there is another way I should be trying, let me know.

She has a superficial resemblance to Mackaill, but she is not her.

Use your snipping tool, save the picture after you snip it and then upload it on tinypics.com and then you can copy and paste the http description of the photo below your reply on this blog and the photos will appear. This site has worked well for me.
Mark Hamilton (I) is on imdb.com
Joseph Hamilton (I) is on imdb.com
Gertrude Brooke Hamilton is on imdb.com

Thanks, here's a try. I think this is the same guy, but in different clothes.

Okay, how about this guy. He has quite distinct features.

It's not Dorothy Mackaill and they all look foreign.

Ah-ha! I believe that the actress above is Miriam Seegar and the film is "When Knights Were Bold" directed by her soon to be husband Tim Whelan. Unfortunately I only have one reel and it has quite of bit of deterioration, but I am glad to have identified it (if I am right). Does anyone know what Nelson Keys looked like? Was that him in those last 2 pics I posted?

I could no longer see the pic of Seegar above. Can someone confirm that this is her?

It does look like it could be her, yes.
