Thanks A Million
The Ted Lewis Museum and the Pickway County Main Library present a screening of the 1935 Twentieth Century Fox musical film Thanks a Million starring Dick Powell, Fred Allen, Ann Dvorak, and Rubinoff and his Violin.
A satire of small-town politics, Thanks a Million stars Dick Powell as the leading man of a travelling musical show. During a short stopover, the troupe witnesses a political rally where a pompous candidate (Raymond Walburn) is wallowing in ineptitude. Sensing a quick-buck opportunity, the show's manager (Fred Allen) offers to entertain on the politician's behalf. The upshot of all this is that Powell, rather than the political hack, becomes the party's candidate for governor!
