Photo Blog #19: Potpourri

Hello and thanks for checking out our latest mystery photo blog.  We’ve got some odd ones for you this time.  Please see below.  As always, “clicking” on any of the photos will enlarge them.  As they are solved, we will update this post accordingly.  Many thanks!

1.  Surely someone has seen this film.  It seems never noir.  Who are the actors and can anyone tell us the title?

SOLVED:  “Deadline at Dawn” with Constance Worth from 1946.–Thanks, Camille!

2.  Might this be an actor or a vaudeville star?  If you know his name, please clue us in.

3.  Anyone know this songstress?

UPDATE:  Carmen McRae?

4.  These two ice skates are, so far, unknown to us.  And, yes, she does seem to be dressed like a car.

5.  That’s Karyn Parsons on the far left, Terrence Trent D’Arby next to her and Lori Petty next to him.  But who is the woman on the end?

6.  Anyone recognize anyone from this group?

UPDATE:  Could the couple in the lower right-hand corner be Henny and Jim Backus?

7.  This man seems to be a radio fan.  But what is his name?

8.  This man seems to be a Mary Martin fan, but what is his name?

9.  Can anyone identify these musicians?  (A code in the lower corner reads:  “SS-KOD.”)

UPDATE:  Could that be Rick Rubin seated in the background?

10.  This shot might be something more for tourism or maybe it’s from a film.  We are open to suggestions.

UPDATE:  A code in the lower corner of this photo reads:  “SS-PROP.”

THANKS!
