Thanks for posting the pics Clay.  After looking at the photos I was reminded that somewhere in the massive arrangement of boxes I currently call "my collection" is the set of eight lobby cards from the Cagney "Man of 1000 Faces".  Now, which box is it........David

You are certainly right about Westmore, but in this case he did apply the make up on Cagney. He was a Movie star and this was the actual filming day, it appears, as opposed to the test make up.
LOVE these photos!!

BTW, AZGILLMAN gave me a lovely birthday gift of one of these Creature framed pics. It' AMAZING!

I can wholeheartedly recommend ordering these prints!

      I have never seen these Addams Family casting days photos and I'm really fascinated. I was wondering if anyone can help identify some of the other tryouts for the Addams roles. On the Lurch side, one is almost certainly John Dierkes (from "The Haunted Palace" and the 1951 "The Thing"). For the Festers, one looks a bit like Joe Besser, and another looks like Barney Martin. A few pages in one Fester is almost certainly Percy Helton ("Cratchit" on The Beverly Hillbillies, many more.) Any identifications, guesses or other ideas on some of the rest. It's also however easy to identify Lisa Loring, Ken Weatherwax and Ted Cassidy. Ken looks to be the best choice, for example as he has a bit more outre look, the other Pugsleys look a bit too middle American.
       Thanks for any other help!

I think you're right on with those IDs so far...

I believe this is a 23 or 24 year old James Cromwell.

Do you think that's him? It really looks like him, but that's a full decade before his first TV credit.

Danny and Mike

I believe this Lurch to be PAUL WEXLER, not James Cromwell...




Paul Wexler is better known (well, to me anyway) as Zutai the Jivaro Indian zombie from FOUR SKULLS OF JONATHAN DRAKE...



Here is another pic of Wexler, notice the two moles on his left cheek that coincide with those on 'Lurch'.

Boy, that sure looked like James Cromwell... they could've played brothers, if not twins, when Cromwell was younger.

Ironic that the moles/warts were on the cheek of the actor who was not a Cromwell!  ;)

Thanks for the info Bob.

Only in L.A.:

A few years ago I accidentally stepped on Mr Wexler's grave while searching for my dad's whereabouts at Mt Sinai cemetary in Glendale. (EZ to do dumb things like this -- get lost & step on people's graves -- as all the graves are at ground level & the name plaques are flat.) After checking to make sure my head was still attached, I beat a dignified but hasty retreat!
