Bric-A-Brac

Do homes have bric-a-brac anymore? Is there any bric-a-brac in your home? If you are under thirty years of age do you know what bric-a-brac is? When one of our comedy pair makes a bunch of money on Wall Street and his best friend arrives at his uptown New York City home to fix the plumbing, he warns his old friend not to break any bric-a-brac. Lucien Littlefield and Charles Murray were famous on the Vaudeville circuit for their comedy routines. Charles Murray pretended to be Michael Clancy, and outspoken Irish man, and Lucien Littlefield was proud immigrant from Scotland Andy MacIntosh. Our movie hit the theaters a few months after the great stock market crash of 1929, wiping out the fortunes of many and plunging America and the world into a Great Depression that wouldn't end until World War II. Clancy and MacIntosh are together in business as plumbers for twenty years when Clancy accidentally purchases some stock while working on the plumbing on the Wall Street stock exchange. He learns about buying on margin, and getting margin calls requiring that he put up more money every time the stock drops. His partner MacIntosh thinks that buying stock on wall street is little different from gambling. When Clancy has to use plumbing company money to cover margin calls the lifelong partnership and friendship between Clancy and MacIntosh ends. Clancy moves uptown Manhattan with his stock money and MacIntosh stays downtown in the little plumbing shop. But then the stock market crashes and Clancy loses every penny because he cannot meet his margin calls, and good friend MacIntosh takes him back into the plumbing company. This movie opens and closes with an Irish song heralding St. Patrick's Day, and opened on March 15, 1930, a couple of days before that great holiday. If you are an old timer and grew up with Irish or Scottish immigrants in your circle of friends, you will absolutely melt with nostalgia when you hear and see these old timers making their way in the new world. If you are too young to know what our early immigrants were like, pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and relax while you meet some of our first Americans from other lands as they make their new lives in this great country.
