Update: Marjorie Rambeau in "Merely Mary Ann,"  1915.

Jul7 8, 1970, Marjorie Rambeau

Here's a mini-mystery: The caption information on this undated photo says this is Rambeau with director Richard Wallace on a Corinne Griffith picture titled "Broadway Blues." Aha. This is from "Syncopatin' Sue," 1926.

Just a reminder on how this works: I post the mystery photo on Monday and reveal the answer on Friday. To keep the mystery photo from getting lost in the other entries, I move it from Monday to Tuesday to Wednesday, etc., adding a photo every day.

I have to approve all comments, so if your guess is posted immediately, that means you're wrong. (And if a wrong guess has already been submitted by someone else, there's no point in submitting it again.) If you're right, you will have to wait until Friday. There's no need to submit your guess five times. Once is enough. The only prize is bragging rights. 

The answer to last week's photo: Jack Mulhall.

Update: Marjorie Rambeau in "The Night Duel," 1926. This was unidentified in The Times photos, so I didn't realize it was from a play when I posted it. 

Look out! The dame's got a gun! Please congratulate Eve Golden and Carmen for correctly identifying our mystery woman.

Update: Marjorie Rambeau and Franklin Pangborn in "In His Arms," a play, 1929.

Here's our mystery woman with a mystery companion -- OK, well he's not terribly mysterious, is he? Please congratulate Dewey Webb for recognizing our mystery gal.

Update: Marjorie Rambeau with George Raft in "Broadway," 1942.

OK, I said I would identify our mystery woman today. But I'm having so much fun with these old pictures I'm going to drag it out until tomorrow.

Marjorie Rambeau in "The Palm Springs Story," 1964. Notice the meticulous detail The Times' art department used to paint out Robin Hayes, 3. Look closely. The artist filled out the pattern in Rambeau's blouse.
