1933 Educational Cast and Crew Still

This forum is nearly identical to the previous forum. The difference? Discussions about comedy from the SOUND era.

1933 Educational Cast and Crew Still

Here's the pic: http://kinohistory.com/EducationalStaff.jpg
And here's the snipe: http://kinohistory.com/EducationalSnipe.jpg

This was posted on Facebook by Ralph Celentano. The mystery is who is the guy standing to the right of Patricola and the left of Moran & Mack? Seems like even Educational didn't know. Someone on FB posited that it was Frank Terry, but I disagree. Could just be a visiting exhibitor. Any ideas? He's the only one in black tie. In any case, it's nice to finally see a pic of Jack White.

The unnamed fellow is Eddie Craven, who appeared with Lillian Roth in Educational's MILLION DOLLAR MELODY (1933).

That's him! I wonder why the Educational publicity dept didn't ID Craven. Of all the performers shown, only a couple lasted longer than the 1933-34 season. Tom Patricola had the longest run, staying until Educational finally sank. And Ernest Truex lasted for two seasons. Milton Berle should have been in that New York group, tho his Poppin' the Cork seems to have just been a one-off.
