14Feb. ’19 THEY HAD FACES THEN: Part One They had names too, but how many do you know? 1 2 Related Posted by Vienna. Categories: Uncategorized. 16 Comments
Well, I spotted Barbara Stanwyck and Grace Kelly, but aside from those I’m stuck!
Good try but no cigar!
Oooh, how fun! I know these: Anthony Caruso, John Dehner, Felix Bressart, James Gleason, Donald Meek, Arthur O’Connell, Elisha Cook, Jr., Percy Helton, Lyle Talbot, Morris Ankrum, and what looks like James Best, but I’m not sure if that’s him. What a great idea, Vienna!
Well done! That’s 11. Though not in right order for anyone who doesn’t recognise them. Will list them in order eventually.
Sorry — I thought I was listing them in the order that they were posted, starting with the first one I recognized, Anthony Caruso. 😦
Of course, sorry, Karen.

Walter, you are 100% correct! That you can name them all is a fine tribute to these memorable actors . Very well done.
Each of them was in more movies (and TV shows) that leading men. John Dehner also played Paladin on the radio version of “Have Gun, WIll Travel”– the only time a radio show came from a TV show. Great group, and lots of fun.
That’s so true. Big fan of John Dehner. Would like to hear Have Gun, Will Travel.
Always liked Allyn Joslyn. He had two leading roles opposite Evelyn Keyes in Dangerous Blondes and Strange Affair at Columbia. One of the most cruelly intrusive photos I’ve ever seen was taken by a fan when Allyn was a patient at The Motion Picture Country House. A sick old man in bed staring at the camera with dead eyes. It was printed in one of the Whatever Happened To books, shame on Mr Lamparski.
I tend to mix up Allyn with Jerome Cowan. I remember that awful photo you refer to.
I love quizzes so I had a go too. Identified 20 out of 24 straight off. Not bad but ‘no cigar’ compared to my buddy, Walter. Well done, that man!
That’s very impressive. I’m glad to have Walter as a regular contributor. To identify all 24 is pretty amazing. I love how fans continue to remember all the great supporting performers.
Vienna, I really enjoy your Classic Hollywood site. I could look at your wonderful choice of photographs all day. Also, your write-ups are good and interesting.
The movies and TV shows wouldn’t be any good without the fine supporting actors and actresses.
Jerry, thank you kindly.
Thanks, Walter. Any blogger will tell you they live for discussion and new information!
I love finding new photos too.
