Film and TelevisionEdit
His first screen credit was the starring role in the 1937 movie Love Is on the Air, and by the end of 1939, he had appeared in nineteen films. Before Santa Fe Trail in 1940, he played the role of George "The Gipper" Gipp in the film Knute Rockne, All American. From this role he acquired the nickname "the Gipper," which he retained the rest of his life. Reagan's favorite acting role was in 1942's Kings Row, but his performance did not meet with universal approval; one reviewer felt that Reagan had made "only casual acquaintance with the [character]".Reagan also played in Tennessee's Partner, Hellcats of the Navy, This Is the Army, Bedtime for Bonzo, Cattle Queen of Montana, and The Killers in a 1964 remake. Reagan landed fewer film roles in the late 1950s and moved to television as the host of General Electric Theater, earning approximately $125,000 per year ($800,000 in 2006 dollars), up to the time that he was fired by General Electric in 1962. His final work as a professional actor was as host and performer from 1964 to 1965 on the television series Death Valley Days.
After retiring from acting, Reagan apparently entered politics, married a chick who started the PMRC with the help of her friends, the old churchmen to stop good music from being good (they failed). And then he did something political that nobody really remembers or cared about. He was a much better actor than politician. He was known to fall asleep in meetings, and based on his old age, Republicans found it understandable. When he died the old church ladies tried to keep his
whatever heritage alive.
