    He was type cast as a polite and polished gentleman. He could not break that mold.
    He retired from acting at 40 to run his racquet club, but returned a decade later to act on TV.
    Although he owned a racquet club and loved to play tennis, he was very bad at it.
    He was a celebrity politician.
    He was the leading box office actor of 1931 and 32.
    He pioneered talking movies and TV sit-coms.
    Despite being in his 50's he was the dashing heart throb on TV's 'My Little Margie.'
    He had a thick but very pleasant Massachusetts accent.
    He was an uncredited extra in 1923 versions of 'Ten Commandments' and 'Hunchback of Notre Dame.'
    He and Janet Gaynor appeared in 12 romantic films (1927-1934). They were known as 'America's Favorite Lovebirds.'
    He was married for over thirty-five years and spent the last twenty five years of his life as a widower.
    They built a statue of him at the Palm Springs Airport. The statue is of him taking a tennis backhand shot (1999).
