The small state of Freedonia is in a financial mess and can only be saved by borrowing from multi-millionaire widow Mrs. Teasdale, whose condition is that crazy Rufus T. Firefly govern Freedonia. Firefly attempts to win the hand of Mrs. Teasdale, as does the Ambassador of the neighbouring country Sylvania, Trentino, who is plotting to grab power of the country. Trentino sends Chicolini and Pinky to find something murky in Firefly?s past with which to discredit him. This doesn?t prevent them from becoming ministers of his high-upness Firefly.
BIOGRAPHY
Arrived to cinema in 1921 and remained active until 1962. He created Laurel and Hardy, promoted Harold Lloyd, W.C. Fields and the Marx Brothers and directed around a hundred movies, half of which were based on his own screenplays. His cinema, mainly comedy, brought originality and a peculiar style, when not emotion, like in his two versions of An Affair to Remember (1939 and 1957), with Boyer and Dunne, and Grant and Kerr, respectively. Winner of Academy Awards for The Awful Truth (1937) and Going My Way (1944).
