THE BOY FRIEND (1928) with Max Davidson

I just acquired this great still of Max Davidson and Fay Holderness in The Boy Friend (1928). Can anybody identify the guy in the middle? Other men listed in the cast are Gordon Elliott (Bill Elliott), George B. French, Thomas Benton Roberts, and Charley Young.

I don't remember an ice delivery scene in the Boyfriend?

I haven't seen The Boy Friend, but Dino brings up a good point, re "the iceman": Could this be a scene from What Every Iceman Knows?
Don't have a still number & title list to search and compare to, but I did have a glass slide years ago for Davidson's Iceman.
Sorry to digress from the question, Bruce, but I don't recognize (don't see enough of his face) the iceman playing Tiny Sanford (or Sandford).

No, the still is definitely from THE BOYFRIEND, the still code indicates D-13, which was the original number the short was allocated, then changed to S-13 when Roach cancelled the Davidson series and moved this short and the others Davidson appeared into the All-Star series.

I've got a copy of THE BOYFRIEND, will look at it and refresh my memory, but I don't remember the iceman being in it either.
