Three on a Match and Three Broadway Girls

November 5, 2016 @ 7:30 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hugh M. Hefner Classic American Film Program present “Blonde Crazy: Joan Blondell”

Three on a Match (1932), directed by Mervyn LeRoy

“You’re a fool, Vivienne. Take it from one who has been there.” So advises Joan Blondell’s chorus girl to Ann Dvorak’s bored socialite sinking into a boozy, criminal underworld in this scorching pre-Code classic. The inimitable, sympathetic grit with which Blondell delivers the line lies at the heart of her appeal to Depression-era audiences.

SCR: Lucien Hubbard. CAST: Joan Blondell, Ann Dvorak, Bette Davis

35mm, b/w, 64 min.

Followed by:

Three Broadway Girls (1932), directed by Lowell Sherman

A trio of girl friends — “The Three Musketeers of Riverside Drive” — are reunited and hit the town to celebrate setting off a series of half-calculated, half-cockeyed romantic misadventures. Amid the contingent boozing and jealous brawling, Joan Blondell plays peacemaker, the gold digger with a heart of gold.

16mm, b/w, 70 min.

Preceded by:

Home Movies No. 3
Digital video (from 16mm), b/w, silent, approx 10 min.
