I recently restored a Hollywood pinball including gluing the cracked backglass together. It plays really nice.

However, I'm wondering about one character on the back glass. I of course recognize Laurel and Hardy, Mae West and W.C. Fields. The other characters look generic but what about this guy? He looks like he's from a specific movie but I guess I haven't seen that one. Does anyone know old movies enough to identify this guy?

Might be this guy, Hollywood director and actor Erich von Stroheim;

Ben Turpin

Guy in the lower right might be Elisha Cook, Jr. He played mainly creepy villians, inluding Wilmer in The Maltese Falcon.

Yes indeed. It's Ben Turpin who was a very popular (at the time) silent movies comedian. His claim to fame was his crossed eyes.
