Movieland Mystery Photo -- Updated
Updated: Our freckled mystery guest with the dilated eyes is Mary Astor!
This week’s mystery guest was Diane Baker (with a surprise appearance by Valerie Gearon!)
There’s a new photo on the jump!
Here’s our mystery guest – in the kitchen!
Update: This is a problematic photo for me. It’s from “Return to Peyton Place,” a movie I had never seen until I got the DVD for comparison (shout out to Videotheque in South Pasadena!) Like many movie stills, it’s slightly different from the actual scene. I pulled the photo from Mary Astor’s file, it’s labeled “Mary Astor” on the back and Mary Astor is in the scene. And that is co-star Luciana Paluzzi. But I wasn’t sure that this lady was Mary Astor, even on a bad day.
Here’s Mary Astor in a frame grab from “Return to Peyton Place.”
At left, a frame grab from “Return to Peyton Place” with Mary Astor. At right, the publicity photo for “Return to Peyton Place.” Opinions?
And here’s a bonus shot: Mary Astor using a Chemex!
