The American dream gets a wake-up call!

Corruption! Snooping reporters! Hula Hoops! Comedy! The Coen Brother’s screwball comedy The Hudsucker Proxy has it all! In it, the loveable but naive mailworker Norville Barnes is placed at the head of Hudsucker Industries after its president commits suicide. And while the board members of Hudsucker Industries think they can control this moron by driving the company into the ground and scooping up its stocks for cheap, he turns the tables by conjuring up an invention that sweeps the nation and wins the hearts of America’s public. Plus, a tough cooke reporter is on the case to expose the impending scandal. 

Part of Nitehawk’s COEN BROTHERS BEFORE FARGO January series.
