Erle C. Kenton
I really enjoyed this biopic of "Diamond" Jim Brady, who was a celebrity in his native New York City at the end of the 19th century. A bigger-than-life man about town, Jim made his fortune in the railroad industry, and he spent his fortune on diamonds (hence his nickname), fancy clothes and huge meals. A powerful eating man was Jim! He loved his oysters and lobsters: he drank buckets of orange juice. He also showered his fortune upon two women he loved but who didn't love him in turn. Edward Arnold was an ideal actor to play the part of the easy- going Brady. A young Cesar Romero is along as the romantic male lead.This movie has it sad parts.
