Look what I found! Think this photo was ever published in The Times? Not! Cover thyself, mystery guest!
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 or Saturday. There's no need to submit your guess five times. Once is enough. The only reward is bragging rights. 

Last week’s mystery guest was Dorothea Kent. The weekend mystery guest was May Boley.

There’s a new photo on the jump!

For Thursday, our mystery fellow has a mystery companion ... and a rather large-caliber pistol.

Oh I am SO going to kick myself when this one is revealed! These are the Mystery Photos that drive me crazy, the ones where I know I've seen the actor before.

The tv show is THE GRAY GHOST, can't help you with the mystery lady.

It's the gray ghost, Major John Mosby aka Tod Andrews.

Tod Andrews

I immediately recognized our mystery star, but couldn't remember his name for the life of me. Then I saw Thursday's picture. Of course, it's Tod Andrews the Gray Ghost. I think I had a crush on him in my prepubesecent days and after seeing that shirtless picture of him think I'm getting another one.

John Beal

D'oh, the guy from "Outrage". I knew I'd be kicking myself.
