Up in Smoke

Synopsis: This film starts with a steamboat gliding along a Southern river. What follows is a parody of a cutthroat Southern tobacco company. \"The Boss\" (the head of the tobacco company) is a Huey Long character unconcerned with people\'s health. He (and all of his stereotypically foolish southern cohorts) want to sell sell sell. His son (an outstanding athlete and a southern gentleman) eventually changes his father\'s greedy attitude to one of respect for human lives. This bizarre film plays like a 1960s TV sitcom.
