Had I looked closer, I might have recognized him. James Stewart, from the film "Calling Northside 777".  
It was made in 1948.

Minox ruined

This is why I recommend *not* using mercury batteries.

This precious BL obviously was ruined by a leaking mercury battery.

DO NOT use *any* mercury battery in a Minox! There are much better, safer, more modern batteries readily available to replace the obsolete mercury batteries. Mercury batteries leak easily and have ruined many a Minox. None have been made for a long time, so any you may have will be very weak from age. Silver or alkaline replacements will not leak and last significantly longer than did mercury
batteries which were the best at the time Minoxes were designed. That no longer is true.
