Mystery photo III

Here's a third picture of our mystery guest from The Times photo archives. Another photo of him is here.
(Hint: He's not Arnold Stang. He's also not Telly Savalas, Mickey Cohen, Sammy Cahn, Billy Wilder, Mel Blanc, Neil Simon or Jack Dragna).

He almost looks like Igor Stravinsky in this picture. But he's not.

Someone asks: "Is he one of the Marx Brothers?" He's not. But if he were, his name would be "Ammo." Hint. Hint.

He's also not E.H. Land (of Polaroid fame) or Harry "Big Greenie" Greenberg. Or Johnny Roselli. Or Frank DeSimone.

And, in case you're wondering, he's not Phil Silvers or the Dalai Lama.
