It is week number seven for the Library of Congress’s collection of “mystery stills.” This week we focus on six stills that seem to belong to productions made outside of–but probably shown in–the US
As always, please feel free to post thoughts or guesses in the “Comments” section below. As images are positively ID’ed, we’ll update this blog accordingly. Clicking on the image below will increase its size. THANKS!
1. While we know this is an American-International Picture film, we don’t know the production or any of the actors. The code in the corner of the still is “6554” suggesting that this film was produced, or at least distributed, in 1965.
SOLVED!: “Escape from Saigon” (1963). Thanks to “Kitty” on IMDB who figured this one out!
2. This still is from another AIP production. It has a production still code of: “6546.”
SOLVED!: “Incident in Saigon”–Thank you, Jeanette!!!
3. The back of this photo has a stamp on it that reads: “11 Aug 1956 / J. Arthur Rank Organisation.” But who is she?
UPDATE: We believe the above leaping lady is Maureen Swanson.
4. Based on the code attached to this photo, we have determined that this still is probably from a film produced in Brazil and made between 1958 and 1964. But what film is it and who is the dancer pictured?
SOLVED: “O Cantor e a Bailerina” (1960)
5. In the upper right-hand corner of this still is the name “Olga Masa.” But beyond that, we don’t know if this is an advertisement, a shot of a dance troupe or from a film.
SOLVED!: The couple in the center are Juan Carlos Copez and Maria Nieves, their dance company, from Argentina, flank them. Thank you, Miguel C.
6. This duo may be a dance team or two actors in their on-screen roles. They might also be American. Once again, we aren’t sure but are open to suggestions.
UPDATE: We believe this be Lita Baron and Billy Daniel!–Thanks, Kristine!
Thanks for looking!
