The Billionaire, His Rebellious Son, and the Single Ruffle Petunias

Edward Arnold had a passion for acting all his life, and with a booming baritone voice he was perfect for radio, but his large girth prevented him from getting leading man kiss-the-girl roles, so he decided to specialize in character supporting roles with plenty of ‘character.’ He was in so much demand in Hollywood that he was often working on two separate movies at the same time. He claimed that the larger his body got, the more offers he got for supporting roles in motion pictures.

In the spring of 1946, life-long Republican actor Edward Arnold was attending a labor convention in Chicago when he was approached by Robert Jennings who pitched an idea for a new radio program. That meeting resulted in a radio program named ‘Mr. President’ and for the rest of his life many fans who saw him greeted him as ‘Mr. President,’ identifying him with that radio program. For each radio program Edward Arnold would tell stories about Presidents of the United States that were not common knowledge, and the audience was challenged to guess which President was being described before his name was revealed at the end of each episode. You can listen to these programs on Jimbo Radio: Mr. President Radio Program —»

Edward Arnold continued acting until shortly before his death in 1956, three years after his leading man role in this story. In this movie he is J.R. Compton, the hard-driving businessman who owns the town, and several other towns, along with the factories that bring him his wealth. His young son has just graduated from college and he will try to mold his son into the same kind of man he is, so that the Compton legacy will continue past his death. Of course, once in a while fathers and sons don’t see the world the same way, and the conflict can be murder. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
