Hi Louie, another mighty interesting group of stills! I can help with two: the #2 still I believe is from THE HOLLYWOOD REVUE OF 1929 and the #5 still is definitely from Wheeler & Woolsey's RIO RITA (offhand I think the number was called "The Shawl Dance"). The still with the barber holding the newspaper with the spooky characters is especially intriguing...

Girl with the bow and arrow is Barbara Bouchét in AGENT FROM H.A.R.M. (Universal, 1966).

I also have a hunch the last one isn't a movie still, but some sort of sideshow snapshot. The code looks like an order code rather than a production number. And the lady in it is showing more cleavage than the MPAA generally allowed.

Hi Louie - Still number 4 is from a George LeMaire Comedy, an early sound series released by Pathe in 1929 and 1930. That's George LeMaire with the glasses and white jacket, and to the right in the funny hat and shawl is Louis Simon. Not sure which title this is, and don't recognize any of the girls.

I agree with the answers already given for stills numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5. (And I'd have identified them if my distinguished colleagues hadn't beaten me to it!)
But, I also know still number 3. It's Paula Prentiss from the 1964 Universal feature MAN'S FAVORITE SPORT?

Regarding still no. 7 - too bad the guy is blocking what looks like the lady's name on the poster behind him.

Quite likely. Most of these Pathe talkie shorts seem to be around. I have several LeMaire shorts, though I don't think I have a print or video of this one.
