A film biography of American humorist Will Rogers of Oklahoma. It captures the highlights of his life from Oklahoma ranch life to traveling the world in search adventure and a life as a performer in vaudeville. Portrayed by Will Rogers, Jr. He has the sound and character to be his father--the Cherokee Kid, Will Rogers.
I remember seeing this in Australia and I had just made my teens. Managed to see it a few times. I thought, then and still do now,it was entertaining and had a message. Of course how wonderful for a son to play his Dad ,and Jane Wyman a wonderful actress. The world has lost something when movies like this are seldom made. I will have to and search Amazon and bite the bullet and pay the freight for an old copy. Very hard to get now.I think the family keeps it hidden away. And the folksy, home spun little stories he spun were all gems in themselves. Home truths. Delightful barbs when he was talking about politicians and others in the spotlight. Said gently but painfully sharp. We need a will Rogers today.
