The Two Hour Marriage and the Six Week Divorce

“Break a Leg” is a common expression wishing good luck to an actor, and it certainly brought young Richard Arlen the ‘break’ of his life. After flying for the Royal Canadian Flying Corps during World War One as a fighter pilot, Richard Arlen drifted to Los Angeles where he became a delivery man for a motion picture film laboratory.

One day in 1925 he was riding his motorcycle with a film delivery for Paramount Pictures, and when he didn’t hit the brakes in time he crashed into the studio gates and broke his leg. The studio was quick to provide medical aid to the young fellow, and a studio executive stopped by to see how the young fellow with a broken leg was doing. The executive was so impressed with the young man’s rugged good looks that he was offered a movie contract the day his broken leg was fully mended. Richard Arlen would star in the motion picture “Wings” that earned the very first Oscar for Best Motion Picture, and would act in almost two hundred movies before his passing in 1976.

In this big-city gangster adventure he is a Nevada rancher who shelters and protects a young New York City society girl who has just married one of the biggest gangsters in the nation without knowing who he really was.

Young bride Joan Carlo, played by Virginia Grey, leaves her wedding reception and hops a train for Reno, Nevada to get a quick divorce, but gangster hubby Howard Carlo will follow her out to Reno and find her with the rancher that she has fallen in love with. In grand cowboy style, Richard Arlen will beat up the bad guys and welcome the pretty blonde into his waiting arms. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
