Died: January 20, 1960 in Hollywood, California, USA

and
July 27, 1924
Matt Moore was a film star who was known as one of the screen's finest and most facile young
comedians.

Moore's career was described as one of a slow and steady process. He had never taken a reduction
in pay, but he also never set the town on fire.

"I'm afraid of flares," he said, "and never want to be one. Actors usually flop after a flare."

The film that won Moore fame was "Fools in the Dark" (1924), in which his fight scene registered
him rather effectually with movie fans as a screen fighter of Dempsian skill and prowess.

Other films Moore appeared in throughout his career include "Grounds for Divorce," "The Unholy
Three" and "Traffic in Souls."

Moore was born in Ireland and came to the United States with his family in 1898. His brothers, Tom
and Owen, were also successful film stars.
