Fighting for Louisiana and Rita Hayworth
28 December 2003 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Louisiana is about to be purchased by Thomas Jefferson. John Colfax, realizing there is going to be trouble because of higher taxes, goes to speak with the president. Coming back, he falls in love with Rita Hayworth, whom he meets on the boat. She is the governor's daughter. In the meantime Gilmore from the fur company is doing everything he can to get the power to rule the state. This one hour film is very entertaining.
