Although the real Diamond Jim Brady died in 1917, almost 20 years before this film was made, Edward Arnold, who played him, actually met Brady twice when Arnold was a young actor just starting out in the theater - once when Brady came to pick up an actress who was in the same play as Arnold, and another time when Arnold was in Ethel Barrymore's acting company and Brady came backstage to pay his respects to her.

I haven't seen this movie for several years. If anyone can tell me where I may purchase it on DVD, I would greatly appreciate it. The acting of Edward Arnold as Diamond Jim was superb. Edward Arnold was always one of my favorite character actors and in this movie he shined.
His characterization of Diamond Jim as a boisterous railroad tycoon showed a love of life. His portrayal also showed a sympathetic and humane side of the real Diamond Jim.
Edward Arnold could always play larger than life characters with great ease and ability. Although this movie was made 73 years ago in 1935, the ease and naturalness of the acting still holds up today.
Someone please tell me where I may purchase this movie.
