Interesting Facts

1Children with Harriet Marshall: Elizabeth, Jane, William.
2He played Diamond Jim Brady in both Diamond Jim (1935) and Lillian Russell (1940).
3In 1916 after a year with Essanay Studios, "Moving Picture World" hailed him as promising "to be one of the most popular leading men on the screen.".
4The son of German immigrants, he worked as a butcher's assistant, bellhop and stoker before first acting on stage in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the age of seventeen. He appeared in films with Essanay from 1915. Arnold was a star character actor during the 1930's and 40's, with MGM (1933-34, 1941-50), Paramount (1937) and Universal (1939-41), specialising in roles as corrupt politicians and blustering tycoons.
5A lifelong conservative Republican and staunch anti-Communist, he was nonetheless an early and ardent opponent of the studio blacklisting of suspected Communists.
6Portrayed a different president each week on ABC Radio's "Mr. President" (1947-1953).
7Arnold actually played both the Devil and Daniel Webster in succeeding years, playing Webster in The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941) and the Devil in the WWII propaganda short Inflation (1942) the following year. The latter film, incidentally, also marked the film debut of Esther Williams.
8One of the first actors to seriously consider running for public office, Arnold ran for Los Angeles City Alderman in the mid-1940s. He lost, in a close election, and expressed his views afterward that entertainment and politics were incompatible. Of course, he has been proven wrong numerous times since then.
