Above from L-to-R are Syd Saylor, Verna Hillie, Hal Taliaferro (Wally Wales), Ken Maynard, Jack Cheatham, Al Bridge and Jack Rockwell in the chapterplay, MYSTERY MOUNTAIN (Mascot, 1934). Bridge is in his typical position - getting a stern warning from the hero. This is somewhat typical of scene stills which are staged for the photographer. Thus, a photo is often different than what appears in the film. That's the case with this photo. This is from the beginning of Chapter 6 and Al Bridge is killed with a dart from the Rattler. While Taliaferro and Cheatham are in this still, they do not appear in the actual scene.
