    1938, July7-8 … Ada Klock sent this image in 2016, and I still cannot identify anybody but Lili! The man with a shadow across his face looks like an actor, to me, but cannot think who?

      Now, could be a distortion of the image (on the edge of same) from the lens but the fellow on the left sorta looks like actor Jon Hall (another interesting tie in- didn’t he own one of the technicolor cameras used on AORH?).

      Fellow in the middle also appears to resemble publisher George Putnam (and husband of Amelia Earhart) though a bit younger looking than Putnam (age 51) would have probably been.

      Doubt EITHER is the case, but~

        I cannot identify the handsome man on the left. he resembles Jon Hall but I doubt it is him. On Hall, he invented some widescreen home movie cameras called Fantascope which went nowhere. He even owned a small film studio he rented out to independent producers. Thanks Ralph Schiller
