Victor Moore Facts
Moore, or his family, was into buying real estate. A building in the Jackson Heights section of Queens is named after him. The Victor Moore Arcade is bounded by Roosevelt Ave., Broadway (Queens' Broadway) and 75th St. It houses stores, offices, a bus terminal and two entrances to a subway station. The Victor Moore Arcade was actually seen in a movie. Henry Fonda exits from the subway at this building at the start of Alfred Hitchcock's The Wrong Man (1956).

Children: Victor Jr. (c. 1910), Ora (c. 1919) and Robert (c. 1921)

There is a rarely shown sound film in existence which shows Moore as Vice President Throttlebottom in a dialogue scene from "Of Thee I Sing" (the scene in which Throttlebottom is lost in the White House and gets mixed up with a group touring the building). It was part of an Edward R. Murrow "See It Now" program on the Vice Presidency, and not, as is assumed by some, part of a film version of "Of Thee I Sing". "Of Thee I Sing" has never been filmed, although there is a videotaped 1972 television production of the musical.
