Synopsis

Claiming to have never met a man he didn't like, Rogers was America's first international multimedia sensation, whose wit and homespun wisdom went straight to the nation's 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, Ziegfeld's Favorite, wranglers, and a roper. After marriage, kids, fame and even a run for the presidency, Will's life ends with fateful plane ride he takes with his friend, Wiley Post.
