  Los Angeles Times file photo  

image Mack Sennett was this week’s mystery guest. I found this picture in his file and thought it would make a nice mystery photo.

Update: Harry “Kid” McCoy, center, is the only fellow identified in this photo, so I’m hoping the Daily Mirror “brain trust” will come through with the rest of the identities.  As Stacia suggests, the fellow on the lower left looks like Slim Summerville, although I can see a resemblance to Lupino Lane.  And the mystery woman on the right appears to be Mae Busch.

Update 2: Mary Mallory writes: I have some information on the Triangle Komedies photo.  It is THEIR WEAK MOMENTS (Triangle-Sennett, 1917).  Harry McCoy stands holding the gun, the woman in the straw hat is Cecile Arnold, and the woman in the black hat is Vivian Edwards.  The man on the floor with the tilted hat is Mal St. Clair.  Don't know the other two.  I figured this out from Brent Walker's book which has a photo of McCoy and the women, and then discovered that we have the exact same photo in the film file.

There are more detailed images on the jump.

At right: Mack Sennett and Thomas Ince ankle Triangle, July 7, 1917
