Thoughtful Tribute to Will Rogers
28 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm watching it now as a trailer on TCM. It was nice to find the year produced on IMDb.

PARDON THE CAPS< STUPID FILTER KEYS!>

IT"S WONDERFUL THAT THIS SORT OF INFO CAN BE FOUND HERE

The film starts with Cooper and Carey reminiscing at the corral, followed by newsreel footage of the crash that claimed Rogers and his friend Wiley Post.

Next is footage of Mr. Rogers in "State Fair", and concludes with Robert Taylor asking for contributions to a hospital wing named for Mr. Rogers. A classy, nostalgic look back at the Golden Age of Hollywood.
