  • Mystery photos from the 1930s-40s

    Can anyone help identify any of the subjects of these pictures.... I'm not sure whether they are people who look like British actors of the period or they are the genuine article.
    David Lean (on the left) John Mills, Bernard Miles, possibly a young Joe Gladwin at the back?

    There's no one on those photos who looks remotely like either David Lean or John Mills.

      The chap on the left in the first picture reminds me of Sydney Tafler.

        Agreed, nor Bernard Miles for that matter as far as I can see.

          It may be a glitch somewhere as it only seems to affect the "Ask A Film Question" section of the forum. The same thing happened on a couple of posts I made on another thread in this section.

            I can almost read the lettering on "David Lean"s hat.

            Is this a dinner at the time of filming 'In Which We Serve'?.

                My guess would be a party for 2nd class passengers on broad a French liner.

                Reasons:

                The hats all seem to belong to 'Les'
                The nautical theme
                The party-goers do not seem particularly affluent

                  An excellent deduction. I thought it all looks too frivolous for wartime.

                    The guy in the sailor hat with the woman (only) looks like Victor Borge.
