Jackson, Johnson, Joe . . . and the Telephone Operator

In 1960 the Pittsburgh Pirates played the New York Yankees in the World Series. Bing Crosby, a part-owner of the Pirates, was so nervous when the seventh and deciding game was approaching that he and his wife left for Paris, afraid to watch the game. That game turned out to be one of the most amazing and memorable games in World Series history. The general manager of the World Series winning Pirates that year was Joe L. Brown, the athletic son of Joe E. Brown, the star of this movie.

Joe E. Brown ran away from home when he was ten years old and joined the circus. He would later claim that he was the only lad in the country who ran away from home to join the circus at the request of his parents. Joe joined a family athletic tumbling act called the Five Marvelous Ashtons, and all his life he maintained his athletic body and strength.

Joe worked on Broadway, motion pictures and television, but I think his greatest contribution was entertaining American troops during World War 2. Joe paid his own way overseas to visit military camps, and was known to perform his entire act a second time in a hospital ward so that even the wounded soldiers who could not attend his performance could get a laugh or two. Joe E. Brown traveled over two hundred thousand miles at his own expense, visiting military bases that the big U.S.O. tours would not visit because they were so dangerous. There were only two civilians who were given the Bronze Star during that war; Joe E. Brown was one of them, and Ernest Hemingway was the other.

In this comedy classic he is Alexander Botts, a young fellow with the optimism and courage that only a fool could have . . . . or a natural born salesman. Nothing will stop him from becoming a successful salesman and earning enough money to ask his childhood sweetheart to marry him. Everything will go wrong, . . . But the happy and indefatigable salesman will smile as his world crumbles around him, and then he will go on to become what he intended to become . . . A natural born salesman. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
