Will Rogers: America’s Cowboy Philosopher

Will Rogers Don't Make JokesWill Rogers is one of the most popular Americans to have ever lived!  he famously said, “I never met a man I didn’t like.” And the reverse was true – no one ever seemed to dislike Will Rogers. He was America’s favorite political comic and commentator,  a major movie star, an impressively prolific and widely read author,  a world traveler and clearly the USA’s  most beloved homespun philosopher for the 20 years between 1915 and his untimely death in 1935.

Will Rogers was a modestly educated part Native American cowboy from rural Oklahoma Will Rogers-radio who wound up charming the world and is still widely quoted today. Will Rogers’ vivid, folksy, popular appeal comes brilliantly the life in this multimedia presentation. You’ll be amazed at how contemporary his political commentary still sounds!
