WKRLEM: "The Founder".....the perfect movie for the beginning of the Trump era
I can't wait to see this movie. It is the story of Ray Kroc who built McDonald's into the multi-million dollar corporation that it is today.
I wonder if they will have that famous story. Ray was looking for investors and he went to his friend who was also a food service machine salesman. Ray sold milk shake machines. His friend sold soft Ice Cream machines. His friend said he was crazy. There was no money in burgers. It was in ice cream. So he didn't get in on the ground floor with McDonalds. That man was Tom Carvel.
I don't know if that story is true. But it ought to be.
I hope they make of movie of Tom Carvel's life. He was murdered. Poisoned by his employees who were stealing from him. That would be one great movie.
In the meantime I will enjoy celebrating a great American corporation.
