The Presidential Assassin and the Out-of-Work Speechwriter

February 15, 1933 was a warm evening in Bayfront Park on Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida. The Great Depression was in full force, and President Herbert Hoover had lost his re-election bid to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In two weeks, Roosevelt would be sworn in as the 32nd President, but tonight he was in a convertible car riding through the park with Chicago Mayor Anton J. Cermak, enjoying the night air.

Soon a crowd gathered around the car, so Franklin Roosevelt stood up and began an impromptu speech to the people crowded around the car. Suddenly five shots rang out from a .32 caliber revolver that were aimed at the future President. Roosevelt was not hit, but Chicago Mayor Cermak was mortally wounded. Roosevelt cradled the Mayor in his arms as the car sped to a nearby hospital. On the way, Mayor Cermak looked up at Roosevelt and murmured his last words before dying, “I’m glad it was me instead of you.”

Back in Chicago, a newspaper reporter who had become the Mayor’s speechwriter was suddenly out of work. James Edward Grant had written some short fiction stories, so he decided to write the Great American Novel. His book was made into a movie, and he went to Hollywood, where he became a very successful screenwriter, and also became a close friend of John Wayne. When Grant wrote this story, John Wayne bought the movie rights, produced the movie, and convinced James Edward Grant to direct it. Stephen Grant, his son, is the younger brother of the leading lady in this adventure.

John Wayne is Quirt Evans, a gunslinger that Marshal Wistful McClintock is determined to hang with a new rope. As our adventure opens Quirt is riding away from a gunfight, and will suddenly fall off his horse, wounded so badly that he can’t get up. Fortunately, a Quaker father and his daughter are nearby, nursing him back to health, and trying to get him to stop his gun fighting ways. But a man without a gun in the wild west is a man without long to live, especially if he is a notorious gunslinger. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
