I love Anna Mae Wong, maybe it made the stars seems more like the common folks, showing them with their pets.

Probably the case. Publicity wasn't like it is now.

I like the style of that one. I'm not familiar with Fred Thomson, and only slightly with Richard Dix. Eddie Cantor I'm familiar with, but would not have recognized him here (the hairstyle and serious expression, I guess?)

I think it's the color of the photo that makes it not immediately look like Eddie Cantor. Yes, Fred Thomson is the only name I didn't recognize.
