The Mystery Gets Revealed!

There were some good guesses, some funny guesses and some correct guesses this time around.  Yes we are looking at young Larry Hagman in 1941 when he was a student at the Black-Foxe Military Academy.

Oh no, not another uniform!

Now since we can't very well shower accolades on someone named Anonymous, we will have to declare Marksparky the first identifiable correct guess!  (sorry 'nony')  CONGRATULATIONS MARKSPARKY!!!

Black-Foxe existed from 1928 to 1968 right here in the shadows of Hollywood on Wilcox Ave. just south of Melrose.

Just as you'd suspect, a lot of Hollywood youngsters and futures would attend including:  Harry Carey Jr., Horace Heidt Jr., Sydney Chaplin and Michael Douglas. 

Here are a couple more sons of.....

The caption reads:  Robert Walker shows his two sons, Bobby and Michael, the camera used in filming location scenes for My Son John at the Black-Foxe Military Institute in Los Angeles, where, coincidentally, the boys are students.

 Thanks for playing everyone, there will be a new mystery soon.

The nose gave it away for me.

Yes, Robert Walker Jr. did act. And in some real stinkers, too - one included a film with Rita Hayworth that just confused me as a teen ager. I had thought that he died young, like his father, but I was wrong.
