One of the most popular figures in the United States of the 1930s, Will Rogers stars as a lazy good for nothing patriarch of his long-suffering family in this rare silent comedy western.

Dubbed ‘America’s Cowboy Philosopher’ at one time Roger’s was the nation’s #1 radio personality, #1 movie box office draw, #1 most sought after public speaker and the #1 most read newspaper columnist in the US. With a career spanning stage, silents, talkies, vaudeville, journalism and social commentary, this is a wonderful chance to see Rogers on the big screen.

Brought to you from the personal collection of film historian, Kevin Brownlow, Kevin says:

“I am very fond of HONEST HUTCH - it's a lovely piece of Americana - and I hope you will be, too. Will Rogers is an acquired taste - slow, charming and amusing in his titles as well as his actions, he is well worth watching.”
