I mentioned this in passing to a co-worker and while perusing the April calendar, he recognized Anne Francis from Honey West, a mid-1960s television show I am unfamiliar with. We confirmed it by the mole to the right of her lower lip. After additional inspection, he claimed another actor was "that woman from Fargo." I didn't recognize Frances McDormand because her photo from Crimewave was in black & white. That was a very subtle but effective misdirect because by making the photo B&W, it made me think of actresses from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
With those two valuable assists, I am able (for the first time) to identify all the actors in one of the Castro's monthly calendars.
April 9 - Kay Francis
April 15 - Francis Albert Sinatra
April 23 - Frances Farmer
April 29 - Anne Francis
April 30 - Frances McDormand
What is the significance of Francis or Frances? I suspect it is because on April 18, 1906, the city of St. Francis had its famous earthquake.
