A few words

Since nobody has actually commented about this film, nor truly knows what its about. I admit that I don't know about it either, except for a few words that Harpo Marx (of the Marx Brothers) wrote about it in his autobiography..

"One day [George Bernard] Shaw and I drove to Cannes, where a friend of his, Rex Ingraham, was directing a movie called The Three Passions. We only wanted to watch the shooting for awhile, but Ingraham had other ideas. He shanghaied us and put us to work as extras. In our one and only joint appearance before the camera, George Bernard Shaw and I shot pocket billiards in a poolroom scene. I'm sure that scene was cut from the picture. No audience could ever mistake us for extras, lost in the crowd. The way we shot pool we could only be taken for what we were--a couple of ringers, a couple of sharpies."

I felt it odd that Harpo spelled his name "Ingraham", and not "Ingram" as IMDb calls him. The fact that Harpo said he was an extra had given me the impulse to look it up at this website, and I hope that someday soon the film will be discovered and we will at last be able to see if he was indeed an extra with Shaw, and if their part as pool players had made the film.
