Samuel Goldwyn used Up in Arms to bring attention to a battle he had been fighting along with the Society of Motion Picture Producers (SIMPP) against theater chain monopolies. The pinnacle of this battle came in Reno where the reigning theater chain owner refused to pay Goldwyn anything but a flat film rental fee. Goldwyn then converted the El Patio ballroom on the outskirts of Reno into a makeshift theater at his own expense and offered to donate the opening night box office receipts to the Reno chapter of the Red Cross. Mary Pickford, a great supporter of the Red Cross and a founding member of SIMPP, attended the opening night to deliver a speech that included the reading of a letter written by Walt Disney all in a show of support for their joint fight against the practice of denying independent producers a share of the profits from their movies. This publicity stunt made national news and became part of Hollywood legend. See more »
A rare talent at work, and if you've not seen it, then hurry up!
This is only the second Danny Kaye film I've had the pleasure of watching, and he certainly didn't disappoint. The scene at the beginning of the film is fantastic, and Kaye's outstanding ability to tongue-twist in a song mixed in a conversation is hilarious! It has a lovely plot and Kaye steals every scene, from his serious romantic side, to his outrageous physical comedy. There are loads of brilliant one liners in there from Kaye, and his character being a hypochondriac just adds to the enjoyment! If you haven't seen this film yet, then what are you waiting for?!
