Jackie Cooper was probably a likeable kid in real life, but he played those whiney, sniveling

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!

I watched Charles Farrell's *Lilliom* from the Murnau-Borzage DVD box set last night. I thought it was ok, the cinematography was nice, the print excellent, the acting was good (Charles made an effort to lower his rather high pitched voice) but the story seemed too stilted to me. I didn't care for the After Death sequences. I think it's a difficult story to film well because the male lead isn't sympathetic.

 

If you've seen it what were your thoughts on it?

These are just Wonderful Pics, MDFFYX . . .

 

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.

 

Ugaarte.

Thanks for the nice comments. A Google search of 3 on a match, offers a couple of explanations.

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.

Well that Explains a lot, MDFFYX. . .

 

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.

Rookie soldiers probably did this on occasion without realizing that at night the light of a flame can be seen by the enemy if they are near. Today it is a superstition, then it might have been

a lesson in battle.

Glad you both enjoyed the photos! I agree Wendy, he looks great in uniform. Victor McLaglen always puts a smile on my face so I couldn't help posting the pictures.

 

Mdffyx, I'll keep in mind what you said about Jackie Cooper because I haven't seen much of his work. Hope Fox Movie Channel airs "The Bowery" again.

Mdffyx,

 

Thanks to you and everyone who's shared their pictures here!

 

I know how much time and effort's involved and I'm sorry things have gone this way.

 

I hope folks realize that your participation here is the only reason I'm re-renaming my Photobucket folders and restoring all my pictures here (and site-wide).

 

As a way of expressing my appreciation for all your contibutions I'm sending you a copy of all my 16,000+ movie pics.

 

Best, Jeff

This is probably my last pic post. Interest in adding pics has apparently fallen off here.
