Recognize anyone?

Here's a behind-the-scenes photo from Raymond Griffith's Hands Up (1925). That is director Clarence Badger on the left, and Griffith is in the middle holding his top hat. The indian actually appears in the film, but he is not billed. This looks like some famous family, or someone's family and not just studio employees. Do you recognize anyone?

The gentleman two to the left from Griffith looks like he's related. Perhaps Griffith's family?

I think that you are onto something. The young man does look much like Raymond. As far as I know, Griffith was an only child. He was 30 when this photo was taken. He would not marry Bertha Mann for a couple of years, but they were dating at this point.
