How to Succeed in Business

Sure, this story has romance, crime, comedy, and enough excitement to keep you well entertained, but there is more . . . Much more ‘between the lines.’ When I was a young whippersnapper of a fellow and trying to sell life insurance, my office manager once told me that working for another man was the crabgrass in the lawn of life . . . . Every person of ambition should use their wits to start and grow a business that has the potential of creating great wealth. If you have ever thought of starting a business, or have already begun, you could not learn more about what to do and more importantly what not to do than by watching this adventure. If you have already succeeded in business and are enjoying the rewards of your hard work you will recognize things that are familiar to you. Our first business teacher in this movie is Jimmy Hanley as truck driver Dick Benson, a young fellow with fearless talent but a bit short on life’s wisdom. He will mainly teach us what not to do most of the time. Julian Vedey is Italian roadhouse operator Tony Spinelli, who speaks with a heavy accent and probably doesn’t know all the finer points of business or living, but his gut instincts from a life of experience leads him to the right answer even when it goes against intellect. Our third business teacher is Joan Ponsford as company secretary Jean Morley. Joan isn’t as ‘sexy’ as temptress Ruth, but she has a common sense attitude that is vital in business. We will first learn the benefits of helping everyone we can, especially strangers. As the story opens Dick and Alf pick up a woman walking along the highway, even though it is against company rules. This act of kindness leads to the first disaster . . . The two drivers are fired because the boss found out that they gave her a ride . . . But this disaster is the catalyst for starting their own trucking company. . . Every disaster has within it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. The young driver’s habit of helping anyone he can also pays great dividends later when a man he helped long ago turns out to be a businessman in need of trucks and drivers . . . Every time you give of yourself without expectation of immediate reward, you will be paid back many times over sometime in the future just when you need it most. But then, as the company is growing and making good money young Dick makes some foolish mistakes . . . . He thinks that although it is his driving talent that is the heart of the company, he can now stop driving and enjoy the fruits of his labor and be a man of leisure, spending his time with other wealthy folk who no longer work . . . . It is good and proper to enjoy the fruits of success, but for a truly abundant life never walk away from the work that produced it . . . . It is the work that always brings the greatest joy, not the reward. There are more lessons to learn, and you will see them if you need them . . . . That’s how life works. And if you are only interested in a great romantic crime adventure, that is also a good thing. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
