Who is John Doe #21
|Above image from Doug Boyer. There's no production number or other information on the front or back of this still, nor any reference to a film title. Does anyone recognize this guy?|
Charles Meeds e-mailed: "I believe it is Larry Steers. He appeared primarily in silent films; the earliest example of which that I have is a chapter from the Ruth Roland serial 'Haunted Valley'. He worked well into the thirties and can be seen in many films, mostly poverty row, in various genres."
Although some of the data may be incomplete or inaccurate, the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has information on Larry Steers: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0824885/

Who is John Doe #20
|Above is another still from Doug Boyer. That's Tom London holding the six-gun and pointing with his left hand. Can anybody identify the other faces ... especially that guy with his hands in the air. There's no production number on this still, nor any film title or names on the back.|
|Richard Oravitz had the arcade/vending card on the left which shows a portion of the above scene.|
The card has a blue tint and measures about 3 3/8 inches wide X 5 3/8 inches in length.
There's no info on the back. Printed in the bottom right corner is THE CAPTURE. It's difficult to see, but MADE IN U.S.A is shown in the bottom left corner between Tom London's cowboy boots.
