Did You Know?


In his book, "Those Crazy, Wonderful Years When We Ran Warner Brothers," former studio page boy Stuart Jerome recalls a bizarre incident that happened with this film. During the preview screenings, several members of the audience started laughing during a crucial dramatic scene when Dewey Robinson's gangster character slapped Marie Wilson. Director John Farrow and studio executive Bryan Foy could not figure out why the audience members were laughing. They set up a private screening of the scene and ran it several times before they discovered the problem. At the moment when Robinson slapped Wilson, his fly was visibly open! It was the kind of mistake that only a few people in the audience would notice, but which could easily spoil the dramatic effect of the scene. Following the discovery, the entire scene had to be re-shot. The set for the scene was re-built, Marie Wilson was borrowed from her current Warner Brothers picture, and Robinson was re-hired at one day's pay. Bryan Foy personally stopped by the set on the day of re-shooting to make sure that Robinson's fly was closed. As Jerome recalled, the incident prompted Foy to send out a memo to all directors and script clerks at Warner Brothers that they should make sure that all male actors had their flies fully zipped up before shooting a scene.

Enjoyable Remake of Three on a Match
18 June 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I found this remake of Three on a Match to be a bit more enjoyable than the original, thanks in no small part to the presence of Ann Sheridan.

Nobody could pull off (no pun intended) an above-the-shoulder striptease like Miss Sheridan. Wowser! I know she didn't care much for her well-known nickname but you can see why the name stuck.

Elsewhere in the movie John Litel does his usual job of providing solid support and little Janet Chapman is something else. She has to be one of the most likable child actors that I've ever seen in the movies.

It's interesting to note that the very last scene in Broadway Musketeers, Ann Sheridan and Janet Chapman embracing, is nearly identical to the final shot of Little Miss Thoroughbred, also directed by John Farrow.
