starring Will Rogers
February, 1920

That rare character comedian, Will Rogers, is advancing with tremendous strides. Rogers is going to be one of the great favorites of the screen, or we miss our guess. In "Jubilo," (Goldwyn), Rogers is a lazy, roving hobo who encounters a rancher's pretty daughter and reforms, slowly, painfully, but completely. Rogers is Jubilo to the life, no mere screen idol masquerading in torn breeches, but a wanderer of homely humanness. Moreover, the performance is rife with a splendid sincerity. Josie Sedgwick lends just the right note to the girl.
