Figure 1.--I know nothing about this film at this time except that child actor Bennie Bartlett (1927- ) was in it. Bennie wears a short pants suit for the film. Even without knowing te title, you can tell that it is an Amerucan film becuse he wears ankle socks and not kneesocks. I'm not sure who the girl is.
I know nothing about this film at this time except that child actor Bennie Bartlett (1927- ) was in it. I am familiar with a lot of the child actors from the 1930s-40s, but Bennie is one I knew little about. There was also a girl, but I do not know her name. The cast inckluded Wolliam Fawley who of course became famous on the TV series "I Love Lucy". The Three Married Men from the title are Peter Cary (Roscoe Karns), Bill Mullens (William Frawley) and Bill's brother Jeff (Lynne Overman). The film begins with Peter who is a country boy about to wed Jeff and Bill's sister Jennie (Mary Brian). The Mullins brothers don't care for Peter to be a part of the family. They try to discourage him by telling him their own terrible marriage experiences. It works and rge marriage is callked off. Of course Jeff and Bill come to see that they have made a mistake and begin working on reuniting the family. The film was co-scripted by celebrated Broadway wit Dorothy Parker and Alan Campbell who she was married to at the time. I'm not sure just how Bennie and the girl here fit into the plot. Bennie wears a dark double breasted short pants suit for the film. Even without knowing te title, you can tell that it is an Amerucan film becuse he wears ankle socks and not kneesocks. Also British boys more commonly wore grey suits while American boys often wore dark suits. Hopefully our movie buff readers will be familiar with the film and can tell us something about it.
