The Two Hour Marriage and the Six Week Divorce

Sylvanus Van Mattimore was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and when World War One began in Europe he was a teenager. America hadn’t joined the fight yet, so he went across the border to Canada and became an airplane pilot for the Royal Canadian Flying Corps in Europe. When he was nineteen years old the war ended, and he drifted around, finally ending up in Hollywood.

In 1925 he was twenty-six years old and working as a motorcycle messenger for a Hollywood film laboratory. He picked up film canisters at movie studios and brought them to the laboratory to be developed before mounting his speedy motorcycle again to deliver the movie reels to the studios.

One day he had reels of film to deliver and as he swung into the Paramount Studios driveway, a movie company truck was exiting, and the collision knocked Sylvanus off of his motorcycle, giving him a broken leg. He was unable to convince any studio to hire him as an actor, but when a studio executive visited him in the hospital to apologize for the accident, the studio executive promised him a movie role.

Sylvanus began acting with the name Richard Arlen, and because he was an accomplished airplane pilot during World War One, he was selected to star in the 1927 flying fighting war movie “Wings,” which won the very first Academy Award for Best Picture. Later, during World War Two, Richard Arlen became a flight instructor for the U.S. Army Air Forces.

In this adventure, he is a ranch owner near Reno, Nevada who reluctantly allows a woman from New York City to stay at his ranch for a week. What he doesn’t know is that she is the new wife of a notorious gangster, and the gangster is on his way to reclaim his wife and kill anyone that gets in his way. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
