Process shot. Studio lighting, projected background.

I'd guess that the T is on the railroad tracks and a donut.....I mean, a TRAIN is coming at them, thus the weird contorted facial expression.
I just don't know how the other guy got a fish hook in his chin.

The guy behind the driver looks like Ernest Borgnine.

That is a production still from the 1939 film "Hollywood Cavalcade."

I believe the actor in the driver's seat is Eddie Collins. The other actor is Jed Prouty.

With all due respect Erik, how the heck could you possibly know that? I don't doubt you, I am just flabbergasted at the things known by the folks who are on this forum. :-)

It's what Stan Howe says Henry.
"For people who like this type of thing this, this is the type of thing they like."
Did I get that right?

Erik, You gotta admit they do look fairly similar, at least to my old eyes.
I bet you would have made a bundle on the 64 000 question game show back in the day!

Herb,

I think you got it right. It sounds almost like a Yogi Berra quote. :-)

Henry Petrino:

I had no prior knowledge when I saw the photo. However, I was pretty sure it was photo from a later film, not an original Mack Sennett comedy.

I used some logic and internet prowess, that's all. Just a fun little challenge to figure it out.

There are other publicity stills from the film with the same two characters:

1

2

What about the T? It seems to be a 1911 with a master coil.
