I often wonder why people in movie stills sometimes have such dilated eyes. Then I found this very freckled mystery guest with about the most extreme example I’ve ever seen.

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!

  Mary Astor, Return to Peyton Place  


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.”
