Here is another set of unknowns. These gentlemen may be actors, or they may be directors, writers, producers. And some might not be affiliated with film/TV at all–perhaps they are captains of industry, or TV hosts, or local anchormen. Regardless, we welcome your thoughts as to who they might be. Please place your educated guesses in the “comments” section below. As always, as they are positively ID’ed, we will update this blog accordingly. And, as always, “clicking” on any of the images below will increase them in size. Thank you!!!
1. The above gent may be a character actor of some note.
SOLVED: This is late LA businessman Richard E. Lewis.
SOLVED!: Actor Bill Cable (“Basic Instinct,” “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”)
3. Who is the distinguished man with the carnation in his lapel?
SOLVED!: This is Walter Reade, Jr., founder of the Walter Reade Organization, a distributor of arthouse films.
4. This gentleman looks very familiar–surely an actor of some renown. But what is his name?
SOLVED!: Director Carl Franklin.–Thanks, Beverly W.
5. Something about this picture seems to shout “anchorman” but we don’t know his identity.
SOLVED!: John J. McMahon, a one-time NBC exec.
6. Who is the man with the glasses?.
SOLVED: F.M. Richard Simons.
7. Another man who looks a bit like he belongs in news or local weather. Regardless, who is he?
SOLVED: William F. Storke, film producer
8. We do not know if the man pictured here is a doctor or if he just plays one on TV.
SOLVED!: Mark Jenkins in the TV show “Young Dr. Kildare” (1972)–Thank you Steven Thompson!
9. This photo has far more information attached to it than we’re used to. It is dated 1982 and is marked “Universal City Studios.” But beyond that, who is the man at the drawing board? (Note the subject matter of his drawings–a WWII fighter plane and an exotic street scene.)
SOLVED!: Ron Cobb, art director/designer. Thank you Mike Johnson!
10. Probably an executive of some sort.
