Above is a tradepaper ad for the lost/missing Wales serial THE VOICE FROM THE SKY (Ben Wilson, 1930). Film Daily has several blurbs in their November and December, 1929 issues relating to the completion and release of this ten chapter serial.

Above, Wally Wales (billed as Walt Williams) and Josephine Hill in a scene from POTLUCK PARDS (Reliable, 1934), one of the Bud 'n' Ben shorts which most often had Jack Perrin in the lead. Hill was married to Perrin, and they had a daughter. But the couple divorced in the mid 1930s.

Above, Wally Wales holds a very young Fay McKenzie in in a lobby card and crop/blowup from SUNDOWN TRAIL (William Pizor/Imperial, 1934).  On the far left are Herman Hack and Fred Parker and on the far right is Jack Kirk. Les Adams adds: SUNDOWN TRAIL starring Wales is a shortened remake of 1930s CANYON HAWKS that starred Yakima Canutt with Wales as the villain. SUNDOWN TRAIL is also one of the few Imperials that Yak wasn't visible in, else this would have been a case of a remake with the star and villain swapping roles.

The above photo is a cast and crew shot from the short, THE SUNDOWN TRAIL (William Pizor/Imperial, 1934), which starred Wales. Below is a crop/blowup of that photo with some numbers referenced to the people whom we can identify.



1. Wally Wales
2. Fay McKenzie (teenager when she did this film; later, a frequent heroine in Autry films)
3. Eva McKenzie (Fay's mother)
4. Robert Emmett Tansey (aka Bob Tansey, Robert Emmett, more; producer, director, scriptwriter, jack-of-all-trades; in charge of the Monogram Trail Blazers and the Eddie Dean Cinecolor oaters at PRC)
5. Barney Beasley
6. Fred Parker
7. John Bridges (in a lot of the Tansey films, including the Trail Blazers)
8. Jack Jones (stuntman and supporting player - he was the double for Wales)
9. Sherry Tansey

There's lot of faces huddling around the camera. Brydon Baker was the cameraman on the Pizor shorts and one of these is probably him.

Producer William M. Pizor is not in this photo.
