The story of will rogers 1952 title sequence


The Story of Will Rogers is a 1952 movie biography of humorist and movie star Will Rogers, directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Will Rogers, Jr. as his father. The supporting cast features Jane Wyman, Slim Pickens, Noah Beery, Jr., Steve Brodie, and Eddie Cantor. Bing Crosby secretly made a screen test for the lead role available for viewing at the Paley Center for Media in New York City and Los Angeles but was deemed too different in persona from Rogers to play the part.
