Movie Info

Will Rogers Jr. stars as his own father in this slow, sentimental biopic. The film begins with Rogers' days on his father's ranch. Rogers eventually strikes out on his own. Attempting to break into vaudeville, Will gets nowhere until he starts cracking extemporaneous jokes about current events.
