When Will Rogers leaves on his flight to Alaska in 1935 the plane that he and Wiley Post are flying is a Vultee BT-13 or -15 (depending on the engine used), an aircraft that didn't come into use until 1940. In the background as they are taking off are Boeing 377s (or C-97s), which debuted in the mid-1940s. See more »
Well it looks like the women are finally gonna get the vote. A lot of men say they shouldn't be trusted with it. Seems kind of silly to stop trustin' them now after eatin' their cookin' for 4000 years.

I agree with the previous commenter about how good this movie is and would love to see it available on video. This movie was made in 1952 and starred Will Rogers Jr. It showed Will Rogers Jr, as his father, doing some performance on Broadway as well as some of the fund-raisers he did during the depression and more of the movies he made in Hollywood. However this website is showing a picture of a movie made in 1961, narrated by Bob Hope, and it is NOT the same movie that they are describing. The one narrated by Bob Hope, is available on video (dvd), and although it is a good biographical movie of Will Rogers, it is NOT the one starring Will Rogers Jr, or any of the other stars listed on this web site. They need to remove that picture as it can cause some confusion for some people.
