Thank you, Sam. Now that I'm home and can check the sources, I think it's obvious that the Changeling Prince in the still from A Mid-Summer Night's Dream in Landis's biography is the same Kenneth Anger who is in the 1928 photo with his older brother and sister.

        I know of two pictures of Anger in MIDSUMMER - one is in the Bill Landis bio ANGER, the other in HOLLYWOOD BABYLON II. I suppose that there's no way of knowing for sure that the boy in the pic is indeed Anger. But check the out and decide for yourself.

Sure looks like him, I've no reason to doubt it.

Anyway I've seen the film a few times too.

I won't mention liking it as I'm not sure it's on the Frameworks Approved List ;-)

(I could mention that Lang, Murnau, Ulmer, Preminger, Sirk & Siodmak were Max Rheinhardt pupils at one time............)
