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 Patricia Morison and the weekend mystery guest was May Wynn!

There’s a new photo on the jump!

It's Robert Warwick!

The man is Robert Warwick.

Is this a very young Robert Warwick?

Robert Warwick. Favorite Warwick film "Sullivan's Travels."

It appears to be Robert Warwick.

Henny Youngman

Robert Warwick, whose 40-year film career went from leading man in the silent era to that of dignified character roles when the talkies arrived.

Francis X. Bushman

Mack Sennett?

Robert Warwick?

Robert Warwick...later a character actor well into the 50's

Milton Sills?

Bryant Washburn, I know I'm wrong.

Robert Warwick

David Manners

I just saw "Touch of Evil" again, and now the mystery guest looks like a very young Ray Collins to me. I'm very impressionable.

Also, those eyes on Tuesday's pic? AUGH.

Sir Cedric Hardwicke

Robert Warwick?

'Enry 'Iggins. In drag.


Is today's photo from Elizabeth and Essex?

Based on Tuesday, the world's first eye transplant recipient?

Samuel Goldfish before he changed his name to Goldwyn and while he had hair?

Eduard Franz

Just saw the new jumpers.

Sure looks like the first X man, Mr.Bushman. With a name like Francis, he had to be good.

Robert Warwick
