Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Edward Arnold (1890-1956) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. Born Gunther Schneider in New York, Arnold began acting after the turn-of-the-century and had a brief but busy run in film from 1916-20, before returning to the stage. He came back to the movies in 1932, at first in small character parts, and then, for a brief time, as a star, headlining titles such as Diamond Jim (1935), Meet Nero Wolfe (1936), Come and Get It (1936), and The Toast of New York (1937), where he was billed over Cary Grant. But the burly baritone with the infectious laugh was always best suited to supporting character roles, and most fans know him best from his appearances in classics such as Easy Living (1937), The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941), and The Hucksters (1947), and most especially in his three appearances for director Frank Capra in You Can't Take It With You (1938), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), and Meet John Doe (1941).
