Description by OLDIES.com:
In the South, peddler marries school teacher and then starts on a whirlwind rise politically, using hysteria among cotton pickers and small-town folk as his device. His rise is halted when his crooked goings-on are exposed. Based on the novel by Adria Locke Langley.
A lively street peddler of snake-oil puts his pitching skills to good use on the campaign trail when he decides to become a politician.
A Southern huckster rises in politics by championing poor sharecroppers and fingering the corruption rampant in big business. But in his attempt to get elected governor, this Huey Long-like character becomes as corrupt as the men he's been railing against.
