    Getting The Woman's Angle on the portrait on the wall in 1952, I reckon it's supposed to be Marjorie Fielding (resplendent here as a crotchety matriarch) in her younger days as a concert pianist:

    No doubt the erstwhile keeper of "Mrs. Podmore's Cat" under the gaze of the PUBLIC EYE.

    Hamilton Brent, an ancestor of the character played by Frank Cellier in the film, on whom the portrait is probably based.

    Tania's mother in Black Eyes (1939), so presumably it's Black Eyes Sr.:

    This portrait shows Bette Davis on board her horse Fury. And with Miss Davis on board, as with most of her films, she acts like a fury throughout the piece.

    You would have thought after all the centuries James Mason had to practise, he would have been able to paint a better likeness of Ava Gardner than this:

    The Great Mr. Handel (Wilfrid Lawson in 1942) addresses his dinner guests including young Masters Michael Hunt and Alan Wren with presumably Georg Friedrich Handel on the wall with some Saucepan Handles further along.

    Elizabeth Sellars is also in The Hireling (1973), but it's her screen daughter Sarah Miles who's supposedly shown here:

    I say supposedly because it looks very unlike Sarah in the film. She explains that she had a centre parting then!

    Is his "late" missus Elizabeth Sellars. Tom displays his standard expression as he could be The Last Man to Hang in 1956.

    Though by the end of the film, it's Frederick himself who's elevated to the wall as faithful clerk J. H. Roberts has a one-sided consultation with him.

    Another one from AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT, this time "The King of Clubs", where there's a rather better likeness of David Swift as the odious Henry Reedburn:

    And I suppose the portrait is of the younger aeronautic days of Tommy Mayfield as played by John Stride, but I don't find the likeness that incredible.

    With the item below the portrait, this could also be in the model ships thread.
