This photo was taken in 1930 and the man on the left is Director Malcolm St Clair and in the middle is Gertrude Olmsted. They were being given a golfing lesson by Richard Dix (the man in the knicker suit with the argyle socks) while filming scenes for the Paramount picture 'Sporting Goods.'
Just thought I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢d ad a little info on the photo! I agree that they do look clueless, but I think that was the idea. Just a fun publicity shot for the papers to promote the new film.
