Will Rogers, Of Course
29 March 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This was a big hit in 1919 when Will Rogers was starring in the Ziegfeld Follies and already famous for his easy-going wit. If you're used to his famous quotes like "I'm not a member of any organized political party; I'm a Democrat" or his sound features, you'd be surprised at how well his personality makes itself apparent on the silent screen.

The director of this picture is Clarence Badger. Almost unknown today, he was an important director of silent comedy from TEDDY AT THE THROTTLE to IT with Clara Bow, to the best of Raymond Griffith's vehicles. He has a fine eye for composition and how to let his actors get the most they could out of a role. Take a glance at this some time and be charmed.
