Judge Priest DVD
Perhaps the best film example of the down-home wit of humorist Will Rogers was this early comedy-drama from John Ford. Rogers plays a small town judge whose unconventional but sound policies endear him to his constituents, while playing matchmaker for his young nephew (Tom Brown), a lawyer preparing to argue his very first case before the court. Anita Louise, Hattie McDaniel, and Stepin Fetchit also star. 70 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
