The G-Man and the Nightclub Gangster
Conrad Nagel was one of the thirty-six founding members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1927. He hosted the Academy Awards show in 1930, 1932, and again in 1953 with co-host Bob Hope.
Conrad Nagel was a tall, handsome movie star idol in the silent era, and when sound was added, he became even more popular. During one two-year period, he appeared in 31 motion pictures. One evening during this time he and his wife wanted to get out of the house and see a movie, but every theater that they went to was showing a film that he was in, so they went back home.
At the beginning of the sound era, he listened to the voices of the studio contract actors, and could reliably predict which ones could succeed in a movie with sound. He was so accurate with his choices that MGM gave him $2,500 a week just for his judgement on actor voices.
In this gangster adventure, he is G-man Alan O’Connor, sent by the Justice Department to Los Angeles to help the police capture an elusive gang of bank robbers. He is accompanied by a lady G-woman named Bobbie Reynolds, played by actress Eleanor Hunt, who was in real life married to the producer, George A. Hirliman. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
