Actor. A veteran actor of over 150 movies in his career, Edward Arnold achieved the kind of stardom seldom achieved by character actors. A burly man with a commanding presence, a round face and piercing eyes, Arnold began acting in his teens in New York. He worked in several Broadway shows and made several dozen Chicago-made films in 1915, but returned to the theatre. Arnold went to Hollywood in 1932 and began the most productive period of his career. He played Diamond Jim Brady in Diamond Jim (1935), Daniel Webster in All That Money Can Buy (1941), tycoon Jim Fisk in The Toast of New York (1937), and Johann Sutter in Sutter’s Gold (1936). He was at his best in Meet Nero Wolfe (1935), Come and Get It (1936), You Can’t Take It With You (1938), Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939), Johnny Apollo (1940), Meet John Doe (1941), Eyes In The Night and The Hidden Eye (1945, a pair of films that starred him as blind detective Duncan McClain), The Hucksters (1947), Command Decision (1948), Annie Get Your Gun (1950) and Living It Up (1954). Arnold was an MC on the radio program called “The Chase and Sanborn Hour,” starring Nelson Eddy, Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, in 1938 and portrayed a different President each week on ABC Radio’s “Mr. President, from 1947-1953. His autobiography, “Lorenzo Goes to Hollywood,” was published in 1940. (bio by: Craig Johnson)
