Best Man Wins (1948)
Edgar Buchanan stars as a man who abruptly leaves his wife (Anna Lee) to “find himself”. When he returns, he discovers that wifey has divorced him and has married stuffy Robert Shayne (later “Inspector Henderson” on the Superman TV series). Buchanan and Lee’s son Gary Gray helps reunite the couple, which is bad news for those in the audience who’ve warmed up to Shayne. Question: How could The Best Man Wins be adapted (as it says in the credits) from Mark Twain’s “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County?” Answer: Because frog-jumping was what Edgar Buchanan was up to when he was off finding himself. One wonders if director John Sturges ever looked fondly back to the complex profundities of The Best Man Wins while he was directing such trifles as Bad Day at Black Rock (54) and The Great Escape (63).
