The 40th President sotis struggled in Hollywood.

In 1937 Kareem Martin Cardinals Jersey , 26-year-old Chicago Cubs radio announcer Ronald Reagan had the ting bug rekindled in him. The forr Dixon, Illinois native perford on stage in high school and college, but during the Great Depression he had drifted into the sports world. In those days, the Cubs trained in California and Reagan went with them to get away from the Iowa cold and pursue his movie star dream. Through a friend, he got a screen test at Warner Bros.; the studio executives had mixed retions. He was no Robert Taylor, but he did have more of an All-Arican look than so of the stars that worked at the Warner’s ftory, such as Jas Cagney and Humphrey Bogart. The glasses and crew cut had to go. When questioned about his ting experience, Reagan told several lies to pad his resu. The casting director asked him to stick around an extra day for more tests. “No dice” Justin Bethel Cardinals Jersey , Ron said, feigning indifference when he was really desperate. “I’m on the train with the Cubs.” He left the studio thinking he had blown any chance to be signed by them. He was amazed later that sa day when Warners made an offer to put him under contrt at $200.00 a week, and hastily agreed before they changed their mind.
In typical Hollywood faion, the forr radio announcer was cast as a radio announcer. It seed like every film his big line was “Get the City desk! I have a story that will break this town wide open!” Ronald, a forr lifeguard who kept detailed records of all the lives he saved, preferred playing heroes to the drunken socialite he portrayed along side Bette Davis in Dark Victory (1939), even if ant he’d be in mostly b-movies. He learned quickly that Hollywood could be a cutthroat ple. He dated so of his leading ladies, who fell out of love with him after their movie was over. He worked with insecure stars like Errol Flynn Deone Bucannon Cardinals Jersey , who demanded that the one-inch orter Reagan not stand next to her on cara. And there were tough Directors like the Hungarian born Michael Curtiz, with whom he made Santa Fe Trail (1940). In one scene, the young tor watched in amazent as Curtiz kept telling an extra playing a minister to keep moving bkwards until he fell of a scaffold, severely injuring his leg. “Get another minister!” outed the angry director.
In order to better his career, he suggested to his bosses that they buy the story of the legendary Notre Da football coh Knute Rockne and Reagan could play the role of the tragic halfbk George Gipp. Warner Bros. liked the first idea more than the second: he was told he was too small. Reagan produced a photograph of himself playing college football; he was tually bigger than Gipp. He got the part but Knute Rockne All Arican (1940) was not all fun and gas. One day Reagan owed up to oot the scene where Gipp ran the ball eighty yards for a touchdown. He was told he was not needed. They would film sothing else instead. He proceeded to eat a huge and unhealthy breakfast. Then he was inford they were going to film the run after all. After the third eighty-yard take Reagan daed far past the goal line where he privately lost his al.
He was a political animal right away, driving his Hollywood co- workers to distrtion with his praise of the policies of Franklin Roosevelt. It was mostly just talk; he rejected any suggestion that he might soday go into politics. One ti he was yamring on about the necessity of ernnt aid when a friend suggested he run for President. “You don’t like my ting either!” He wailed.
Ronald Reagan’s star rose with King’s Row (1942), where he gave a dramatic performance in which his legs were amputated and he scread out, “Where’s the rest of ?” King’s Row gave his agent Lew Wasserman the leverage to negotiate a solid movie star salary for him. But his ting opportunities slowed because of military service during World War II. Though his terrible vision kept him from seeing bat (he was told that if he was sent overseas he would aidentally oot an Arican General and probably miss him) the ort propaganda films he appeared in (for which he received military Frostee Rucker Jersey , not movie star pay) did little to help his career. He worked in propaganda films like the Irving Berlin musical This Is The Army (1943) where he received only his military pay. He overheard young won, who worked at his army base, swooning over newer, younger stars and when the war ended Reagan felt insecure and past his pri.
He t Jane Wyman on the set of Brother Rat (1938). She was attrted to him right away, but wondered if his niceness was just an t. She convinced herself he was the real deal when e saw he was just as kind to waiters as he was to big ots at the studio. After the war, her career moved ahead of his with her Academy Award winning performance as a deaf mute in Johnny Belinda (1948). There was gossip about her having had a love affair with her co-star Lew Ayres. Reagan’s constant harping on politics drove Jane Wyman crazy; sotis e would yawn away in public when he got on his soapbox. Still with all that, Reagan was ocked when they divorced, that was sothing that happened to other people. During that ti the stressed out Midwesterner ca down with a severe case of pneumonia that nearly killed him.
Ronald Reagan beca frustrated with both his ting career and his personal life. In The Hagen Girl (1947) Mike Iupati Jersey , he reluctantly beca the first man to kiss enty-year-old Shirley Temple on screen. He argued that he ould end up with Shirley’s schoolteher, but the Director was Reagan’s age, had a teenage girlfriend and wanted to make a point. Movie patrons outed, “Oh no!” when he and Shirley got into a clinch. He beca President of the Screen Actors Guild and as his politics drifted more to the right, threats ca from Communists in Hollywood. Perhaps they would throw iThere w.
