Who is this guy?

Need help in identifying this guy.Large portrait of a director, or cinematographer.  It is an actual photo.  18x24 inches. The camera behind him is a Mitchell BNC used from the 1930's to the 1970's.  My intuition thinks the photo is from the 60's or 70's?  Anyone know who this might be?ThanksSee More

Dan replied to Stephanie Coreia's discussion OLD HOTDOG CART PIGGY BANK in the group SELL MY ANTIQUES

"I think you are right about the box being a part of the lamp, but my knowledge of 1920's electrical parts is limited, so I still have hope. I can have a box welded, but I'd like to find something original first.  Any one know of…"
