The first movie ever screened at a drive-in, 84 years ago tonight in Camden, New Jersey, was a 1932 Adolphe Menjou picture called Wives Beware.
Except that wasn’t the original name of the movie; it was originally titled Two White Arms. The name was changed for the reissue.
So on National Drive-in Day, we share with you a recording of Menjou performing the title song from that movie. Warning: Menjou was a much better actor than a singer. But unless and until the movie, long considered a lost film, is found, this recording is as close as drive-in fans will get to experiencing it.
