Caricature signed: "Edward/Arnold". 3½x5½ lined page affixed to 6½x7¼ thicker paper. Hand printed caption on each sheet, with date "1937". Arnold (1890-1956) moved from the stage, and bit parts in silent movies, to starring film roles, beginning with Diamond Jim (1935). He abandoned efforts to lose weight after deciding that his girth increased his prospects for getting character roles. A favorite of director Frank Capra, he played a corrupt boss in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1938) and starred as Daniel Webster in The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941). A staunch conservative who considered running for the Senate as a Republican, Arnold nevertheless worked hard as President of the Screen Actors Guild to protect fellow actors from excesses of the McCarthy era. Show through from mounting adhesive. Larger sheet has ½" vertical tear at top and paper missing from lower corners.
