Ida Moore

Highest Rated: 100% Desk Set (1957)
Birthday: Invalid date
Birthplace: Not Available
Tiny, bright-eyed character actress Ida Moore made her first film in 1925, but did not actively pursue moviemaking until well into her sixties. Nearly always cast as a twinkly grandma or man-hungry spinster, Ms. Moore enlivened the proceedings of many a film comedy of the 1940s and 1950s. Her most ardent fans treasure those moments wherein Moore was cast against type as a crook or confidence trickster (vide the 1949 Bowery Boys comedy Hold That Baby). Ida Moore somewhat surprisingly became a cult figure to film buffs of the 1960s, warranting a write-up in the encyclopedic The American Movies Reference Book: The Sound Era, a 1968 volume that curiously couldn't find room for several other deserving "Moores" like Victor and Colleen.
