early 30's movie premiers - part 2


Continuing from the first part I posted, here are more of your favorite stars showing up at 2 or 3 movie premiers in the early 30's. As you can see in the Ralph Bellamy and Ernst Lubitsch photos, there is a display behind them showing a poster of 1931's "The Smiling Lieutenant" so I assume at least a few of these are from the opening night of the film.

Most people have been identified while others remain a mystery, so if anyone can shed some light on who the unknowns are, contact me.

Harry Banister & Ann Harding
(Ian Elliot has identified the poster behind her as 1931's "Devotion")

Earle Foxe & unknown

Ernst Lubitsch & (tentatively idendified by Ian Elliot) Ona Munson

Rochelle Hudson & unknown

unknown and Roy D'Arcy

James Dunn and Molly O'Day
(Thanks Donna and Rob!!)

2 unknown females with Wallace Beery

unknown & Wynn Gibson

Lydell Peck & Janet Gaynor

Polly Moran with 2 unidentified people in the background

I don't know who the guy in the background of the Polly Moran photo is, but man, he really looks like he enjoys having his picture taken!
