Comedian, Commentator, Icon, Star! Will Rogers was all of these things and more to America in the '20s 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 onscreen to a riverboat captain in his final screen collaboration with the equally legendary director John Ford. Get reacquainted with the hands-down funniest character of his time...now immortalized on DVD for all time! "Will Rogers Collection, Volume 1" includes: "Life Begins At Forty" - A wickedly funny account of an embattled small-town newsman whose pen is mightier than the sword! "In Old Kentucky" - A laugh-out loud tale of feuding racehorse owners...and the horse trainer who hoofs on over to the enemy camp! "Doubting Thomas" - 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" - A riveting riverboat ride about a steamboat captain involved in a slick race...and and even slicker court case.
