[Update: I call Daily Mirror readers the Brain Trust and here’s why. Mike Hawks and Don Danard (via email) independently identified our mystery woman and Wednesday’s mystery companion. This still is from an obscure movie that’s not on Netflix, but both of them not only recognized the film but also the character actor – who was misidentified by the studio on the back of the photo. Very impressive!]

Here’s our mystery gal!

There’s a new photo on the jump!

OK, she’s not a mystery lady anymore, but I found so many great pictures in her file that I wanted to run a couple more. Like this one with a (not) mystery companion.
