With regard to the above Stax image Dick
Bann says 'No doubt shot during
PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES, and this is probably a writer for the Spanish
language magazine pictured, being accommodated during a visit to the
studio.....That staircase is used in PACK UP, and compare stills
from this film as to costume and weight.' See below.
Piet Lindner adds: This picture was taken
during the making of "Pack Up Your Troubles"( Spanish version). The
reporter between the boys is Fernando G. Toledo. He is the writer of
the Spanish article in the august 1932 edition of "Film Selectos" a
Spanish film magazine. I know this because I have the original
article in my collection . In my Bohemian Magazine nr.5 I have a
translation in Dutch of this article.

The above are form the collection of
our friend Tyler St Mark. The colour images come from a film
from Tyler's collection that show Stan celebrating his birthday on
16th June, 1964.
The above images are from the collection
of Paul E. Gierucki. The last image appears to have been taken
on the same day as the image we use on the frontpage of The Nutty
Nut News Network.
Edgar Kennedy and his family.

According to the
reverse of this image it was taken on December 16th 1950. Arriving
at Dearborn Street Station the day before appearing in Night of
the Stars. However Dec 1950 was right in the middle of Atoll
K filming. Dearborn Street Station is in Chicago so my guess would
be perhaps the December 16th refers to the date the newspapers
used the image. In the opinion of our friend and fellow Son,
René Riva, this picture was taken between 1947 and 1949.
