What is this from?

This forum is nearly identical to the previous forum. The difference? Discussions about comedy from the SOUND era.

What is this from?

Postby Maurice Terenzio » Tue Apr 02, 2013 4:24 pm

Somebody had this photo up for sale on eBay. The seller stated that it is from the 1930 film, Half Shot at Sunrise, and that Dorothy Lee and Robert Woolsey are on the right. The "vamp" on the left is Leni Stengel, and the man behind the desk is probably George McFarland.
I question the accuracy of his statement, but who ARE these people and what film is it from?

The Robert Woolsey impersonator is Tom Howard, and I think this is a 1929 Paramount short called THE SPY, but I can't place any of the other actors at the moment.

Thank you Richard. Somehow I knew that you would be the one to come to the rescue. My wife and I are both looking forward to meeting you in June at Slapsticon.

Yer Welcome Maurice. I thought we had met before at previous Slapsticons, but we can certainly meet again at this upcoming one.

I think the young woman in uniform next to Howard is Margaret Breen.
