The Impossibly Difficult Name that Movie Game

Hot Diggity! Onion soup on Friday! My favorite! And you can be sure that this fellow will give you a generous portion. Don't mind the flies in the soup, they only add to the flavor. 

If you can guess which film this screenshot is from, you have a prize coming your way. If you have no idea what movie this is from, guess a title anyway! There is no penalty for a wrong answer. Check out the full rules to the game here.

    1. Great guess, CW! But no, that's not the film. I know you know who that familiar face is.

  2. Drat! Our old pal is in so many movies. I was so sure. Pride goeth before a fall. I'll keep thinking.

  3. The guy has almost 550(!) film and TV series appearances to his name, but I'm gonna go with "Mister Big" (1943).

    This is from the film "Gold Rush Maise" (1940).
    Irving Bacon is in sooo many films and many of them include diners.
    Solving this screenshot has preoccupied me (enjoyably) for years!

    Gold Rush Maisie (1940). The man in the photo is Irving Bacon who appeared in Petticoat Fever (1936) from which I identified him recently!
