Who's That Face ...
inquiring minds want to know!

There's always questions about the real names of some performers in the ol' B western. Here, we'll chronicle some of those faces, and hopefully, we'll also include some answers.

Before you take a guess and e-mail me with a name for these faces, you need to cross-check your guess against the Prolific Performers list by clicking HERE. If the name that you're thinking about is listed among the Prolific Performers, it is NOT a correct answer. We know the faces associated with all the names on the Prolific Performers.

Would also be a big help if you would list a film or two in which your guess appeared.
