In the Film Noir, "Three Strangers" with Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet & Geraldine Fitzgerald,
(on Youtube, under the Clip "Meeting of Strangers"), Peter lights Geraldine's cigarette,
and then his own, and then proceeds to hold up the match to Sydney, to light his cigarette,
but Sydney backs up and Peter blows the match out and 'snickers' at Sydney, "Whats the matter,
Three on a Match ? ". . . .and Sydney just states, " We all have our Silly Superstitions". . .
And also another Peter Lorre Movie, "Crack Up" 1936, (on Youtube, under the Clip,
"Three on a Match" . . . 3 guys light up their Final cigarettes with One match and one of them
asks if anyone is superstitious, to which Peter Lorre replys, "Only of a guy who's born Bad
and grows up Worse ". . . . (at least, thats what it sounds like he's saying).
And your Explaination seems to come from that time era and just seems to fall
right in place. Thanks a Lot.

The most popular one comes from WWI, when it was said that if foxholed soldiers passed
a match to a third person, the enemy would have been given a clue as to where to aim his shot.
That would mean bad luck for the third person, as he would be the one to get hit.
The phrase, over time, has come to mean that the third person on a match would have severely bad luck.

One of your Pics, posted on 3/13/09, has Joan Blondell, Ann Dvorak & Bette Davis,
in, "3 on a Match". . .
I had inquired on a another thread about the term, "Three on a Match".
Would you happen to know what this 'Term' means ? . . . It seemed to have been used
quite a bit. I noticed it a lot in some of the Peter Lorre Movies I had seen.
I'm really curious to find out.
And that is such an interesting photo of a blonde Claudette Colbert, too.
Thanks again for sharing your Wonderful photos.

parts that really irritate. Fay and G Raft were excellent in the Bowery but I couldn't
enjoy Cooper's and Beery's scenes. And that's my unprofessional opinion!
