If you grew up in the 30's when there was no TV but only RADIO, you would have found this film very entertaining. Chester Lauck was one of the veteran stars of this film on the "Lum & Abner" show on CBS, NBC in the good Old Radio Days. This film enabled the public to actually view their radio stars on the big screen and their comedy made this film a great success. The big events in the film happened in the local general store in the STICKS (or rural country) and the artificial invention for rubber is discovered and the local town decides to bring their invention to Washington, D.C., where this discovery can be utilized in WW II. This is truly a great Classic film and can only be enjoyed by a select few from the Past.
