The Two Hundred Thousand Dollar Boat Ride of Death

In 1891 the Princeton University Triangle Club was founded to produce musical comedies, featuring student actors. It is the oldest university theater troupe in America. In the mid-1920’s, Charles Arnt, a young business student, became president of this club. At that time the club had its own dedicated private train that took their theater productions on the road around the country.

In 1928 Charles Arnt teamed up with fellow Princeton students Henry Fonda, Margaret Sullivan, Joshua Logan, and James Stewart started a summer theater in Cape Cod called the University Players. Charles Arnt was the son of a banker, and the grandson of a banker, and although he loved acting, he was studying to become a banker.

Unfortunately for the banking world, while he was still studying at Princeton, and performing in the theater group, the Great Depression began, and the future for bankers was very bleak. Charles Arnt later said “I remember that one day 13 banks failed in Chicago, and I figured it would be just as good to be acting as working in a bank.”

His first paid movie part was to take a drink of wine and fall to the floor, for which he was paid $50. He recalled, “I tasted the wine and fell down to the floor from about 8 in the morning until 6 at night. I was so bruised, but I got $50 for it, and in those days . . . my apartment cost me only $35 a month, and $15 would take care of a whole week’s food in a good restaurant, and gasoline was nine cents a gallon . . . that was pretty good pay.”

In this adventure Charles Arnt is mysterious traveler Daniel Bergstrom, who in Sidney Greenstreet style, will match wits and bullets with Robert Lowery, who is mysterious traveler Joe Beck. There are enough surprises and plot twists in this mysterious adventure that I won’t reveal anything more, lest I ruin your amazing journey. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
