Update: This week’s mystery star is Sally Eilers, shown in a photo dated Dec. 14, 1929.



Jan. 7, 1978, Sally Eilers

Jan. 7, 1978: Sally Eilers dies at the age of 69.  In case you’re wondering, I don’t intentionally have a Hoot Gibson theme going—It just worked out that way.
 
 
Just a reminder on how this works: I post the mystery photo on Monday and reveal the answer on Friday ... or on Saturday if I have a hard time picking only five pictures; sometimes it's difficult to choose. 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 reward is bragging rights. 


The answer to last week's mystery star: John Carroll!

She looks so familiar, like someone I saw in that Kevin Brownlow-David Gill documentary Hollywood years ago. But can't remember the name. Maybe it's Mary Astor.

Is it Sally Eilers?

Sorry I am late, just got back from a short vacation. It is Sally Eilers.

Olivia de Havilland

After looking at the photo from Tuesday I believe the actor with Sally is Hugh Trevor.


Janet Gaynor?
