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.
