Victor Moore

  1. John Barrymore, The Great Man Voteseer bit toe gt stuck in a bath tap during , 1938.     Plan A, Moore having the lead opposite ZaSu Pitts, blurred into Plan B for Barrymore. Opposite Virginia Weidler. To help him out of his doldrums, director Garson Kanin insisted everyone should called Lionel – Mr. Barrymore. Various crews members immediately quit.   Moore made 73 films in 40 years and ii best remembered for his finale – as the plumber with the enviable task of helping  a naked Marilyn  Monroe in  her bath  when her big toe got stuck in a bath tap during The Seven Year Itch, 1954. 
  2. Frank Morgan, The Wizard of Oz, 1938.
  3. Thomas Mitchell, It’s A Wonderful Life, 1946.
  4. Edmund Gwenn, Something For The Birds, 1951.   Moore was due to assist environmentalist Patricia Neal’s fight to to save the California Condor from extinction. Even he would agree that Gwenn made a better “Admiral” Johnnie Adams, an engraver and Washington’s most successful party-crasher – forging his own invitations to functions.
