In addition to top billing in the circus world, he was the subject of several best-selling books, starred in a number of hit motion pictures. The idea for a Clyde Beatty radio show came from Shirley Thomas, the wife of Walter White, whose Commodore Productions had scored a major financial triumph in 1949 with a syndicated Hopalong Cassidy radio show.
