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.
This is an amazing tale of a person who lived and made his claim to fame in the early decades of the 20th century. There were so many apt points he made about politics that are spot on about our current political world. We could sure use someone like him now to take a bite out of the polarization we have now about political issues. He maintained that we all care about each other and that as long as we have that the U.S. will never go down. We could definitely benefit from such ideas today. Great movie, great cast. Will Rogers Jr. portraying his dad. Jane Wyman as the love of his life. Great family and feel good movie. I viewed it on TCM, if you get the chance, don't miss it!
