Trivia

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.

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

This movie is a remake of "Three on a Match" starring Ann Dvorak, Bette Davis and Joan Blondell, but if you haven't seen "Three on a Match" then see that first then this, some things were changed but its pretty good and you see a resemblance, the title "Broadway Musketeers" was a wrong name for the movie, but its worth watching, if you can catch it on Turner Classic Movies, I've got it. Margaret Lindsay, Ann Sheridan, and Marie Wilson star in this remake, but I have to say the first one was better, Margaret Lindsay plays the part Ann Dvorak plays, a rich girl who's not happy and goes the wrong way, the beautiful Ann Sheridan plays the showgirl, burlesque dancer like Joan Blondell played in the first one, she cleans up her life and replaces Margaret's character lifestyle, Marie Wilson plays the part Bette Davis, plays the stenographer, her character isn't much. Like I said this isn't the best film, but these girls are more beautiful and glamorous then Bette Davis, Joan Blondell, and Ann Dvorak were, they added some glamour to the movie, and this film didn't make them stars like Joan Blondell, Ann Dvorak, Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis became, but worth watching. Ann Sheridan was the only one to become big but she's much forgotten today, but in the late 30s and 40s she was the top pin-up girl, beautiful girl she was, glamour queen.
