William Gargan, busy Brooklyn-born actor, plays bike polo — with the rear kickstand planted in the turf, and a push-broom instead of a mallet. The photo is from 1936, when Gargan had a mere eight films in theaters, including Warner Bros.’ Man Hunt. Other titles on his 100-plus filmography: I Wake Up Screaming (1941) and the Shirley Temple vehicle Miss Annie Rooney (1942). Gargan received a...

Viola Dana wheels around the Cirque d’Hiver velodrome in Paris in a scene from the 1924 silent movie, Open All Night. The Brooklyn born actress appeared in more than 100 shorts and features from 1910 to 1929, but failed to transition successfully into talkies. Look for another Rides a Bike photo of Dana as she tricycles on the Cirque d’Hiver track!

Marisa Pavan, playing a farmer’s daughter in World War I France, makes goo-goo eyes at Robert Wagner, in the role of a lovestruck Army private. Dan Dailey, as the sergeant, looks on in this still from John Ford’s 1952 Technicolor war pic, What Price Glory. The Twentieth Century Fox film marked Pavan’s screen debut — she is Pier Angeli’s twin sister, and was married to the French star...

Shirley Temple watches as a gentleman we believe to be her dad, George Temple, affixes a license plate to the tiny  film star’s new bike. A caption-less publicity photo from Fox, in 1935, when Temple starred in a few “little” movies: The Little Colonel, Our Little Girl, The Littlest Rebel and, yes, Curly Top. If anyone can positively ID the man in the suit, let us know!

Sandra “Sandy” Wirth, baton-twirling beauty pageant contestant-turned-Hollywood-actress, goes hands free on her Schwinn Traveler in this odd handout photo from the prescient political satire A Face in the Crowd. Odd, because Wirth remains uncredited in the 1957 Elia Kazan-directed Warner Bros. release.

Jan Sterling cycling around the Universal backlot, on a break from shooting Kathy O’, the 1958 comedy about a child star (Patty McCormack) and the reporter (Sterling) who breaks through the movie publicist’s plot to hide the kid actress’ real mega-bratty personality.

Shaun Cassidy, starring as Dave Stoller in the ABC- TV adaptation of the Oscar-nominated Breaking Away, rides his Huffy 12 Le Grande (!) around town. The show ran for one season, 1980-81. The teen heartthrob singer-turned-actor switched to writing and producing in the 1990s — and he’s still at it. Maybe he’s upgraded his bike, too.
