Can you help me identify the tall hatted man standing in between Gene Kelly and my grandfather?

Stanley Donen Sol Baer Fielding Unknown Man Gene Kelly watermarkAnyone know who the tall older fellow is in this photo?

Of course, you probably all recognized the incomparable Gene Kelly next to him. On the other side of the mystery man is my grandfather, Sol Baer Fielding, and next to him is the legendary choreographer Stanley Donen.

By the way, Mr Hatted Man is extremely tall – my grandfather was unusually tall for his time at 6′ 2″. Looks like this fellow is holding his cane behind him, probably for the benefit of the photo.

Any ideas?? If so, contact me via my official Facebook page or on Twitter.
