It's A Whole New Mystery!

Now before you go thinking, 'is he doing nothing but the ol' mystery routine anymore', the answer is no.  I'm just cleaning out some old mystery photo files.  And truth be told, I've hit an ebb recently on inspiration. 

Well, that and things have been kinda busy around here what with tours, facebook page updates, other facebook page updates, recent community service commitments, haggling with greedy real estate developers who want to bulldoze Hollywood History for skyscrapers,  and so on.....

And besides, you all seem to get such material enjoyment out of this game.

IF YOU ARE NEW TO THIS GAME PLEASE READ.  If you've seen this picture before, or know for sure who this is, feel free to send me an email, but for the sake of unbridled mystery and tension, let the gang have a go guessing in the comments section.

So, without delay, Who's the kid?

It is perhaps fitting that he's in a sailor middy.  ('tho most children were back then)

The Mystery Gets Revealed!!!

Alright, this one was, shall we say, perhaps a little left field.

The beauty in question is Margaret Field.

Margaret has a list on imdb of 91 performances!  They begin in 1945 and conclude in 1973.  She belonged to that grand tradition of "working actor".  If you turned on series or anthology television in the 50s and early 60s you would frequently find Margaret.

As a young divorcee with two small children in the early 50s, Margaret married stuntman/actor Jock Mahoney and so you might also see her work credited to Maggie Mahoney, and handle she sometimes used.

Sadly, many people don't know or recognize Margaret, but they're almost certain to be familiar with her first born child, Sally.

Margaret, at age 89, passed away November 6, 2011, on Sally's 65th birthday.
