Description by OLDIES.com:

Comedian. Commentator. Icon. Star! Will Rogers was all of these things and more to America in the 1920s and '30s, and his political jabs and witty one-liners are still quoted - and still timely - today! Collected within are some of Rogers' most beloved performances - from the newspaper columnist role he seemed born to play in life and on screen, to a riverboat captain in his final screen collaboration with equally legendary director John Ford. Get reacquainted with the hands-down funniest character of his time...now immortalized on DVD for all time!

Life Begins At 40 (1935, 80 mins.): A wickedly funny account of an embattled small-town newsman whose pen is mightier than the sword!

In Old Kentucky (1935, 86 mins.): A laugh-out-loud tale of feuding racehorse owners...and the horse trainer who hoofs on over to the enemy camp!

Doubting Thomas (1935, 74 mins.): A wonderfully wacky tale co-starring Billie Burke (The Wizard Of Oz) as a stage-struck wife to Rogers' dumbstruck husband!

Steamboat 'Round The Bend (1935, 81 mins.): A riveting riverboat ride about a steamboat captain involved in a slick race...and an even slicker court case!
