Claiming to have never met a man he didnít like, Rogers was Americaís first international multimedia sensation, whose wit and homespun wisdom went straight to the nationís heart. The character of Will Rogers narrates his life story through a series of spectacular Ziegfeld Follies production numbers which come to life with Ziegfeld Girls, Ziegfeldís Favorite, wranglers, and a roper. After marriage, kids, fame and even a run for the presidency, Willís life ends with fateful plane ride he takes with his friend, Wiley Post.
