Will Rogers and his family fall victim to the Great Depression and head off to California.Along the way,he encounters other travelers,and the man who was famous for the statement"I never met a man I didn't like" shows that he was apparently only referring to people who were born in America.There is a very uncomfortable scene with a man named Cohen(Harry Green),and another with an Indian,which is thankfully short,perhaps due to the fact Mr. Rogers was half-Cherokee himself.Call this review revisionist history if you want,but I call them like I see them.Different times,I guess.
