The Story of Will Rogers [DVD] [1961]

The fascinating life of lasso-twirling funnyman Will Rogers is explored in this documentary narrated by comic legend Bob Hope and originally aired as part of NBC's Project Twenty series in 1961. Originally rising to fame as a lariat trickster for Texas Jack's Wild West Circus, Rogers' irreverent, off-the-cuff quips soon gained greater popularity than his eye-popping rope skills. In this well-researched documentary, newsreel sequences, archival appearances, photographs, and home movie footage converge to paint both an intimate portrait of the beloved cowboy philosopher, and explore the remarkable impact he had on legions of loving fans.
