Will Rogers at his Best
14 December 2012 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

The other reviews do a good job of explaining the plot but omit two of the best lines from any Rogers film which illustrate his ability to comment on politics of his day or of ours. Rogers is at his relaxed best as the wily rural county chairman.

Rogers' candidate is young. This results in many people commenting and complaining about his age. As Rogers travels with the young man to drum up votes he must deal with the older voters reluctance to vote for a youngster.

"Well, I know he's young but he's getting over it everyday."

"There ain't nothing wrong with him that the calendar can't fix!"

Two of my favorites. Sadly the film has not been released on DVD.
