~Plot Synopsis~
Richard \"Skeets\" Gallager, a breezy ex-vaudevillian who enjoyed a brief movie career on both sides of
the Talkie Revolution, plays the title role in Alex the Great. Alex is a none too bright Vermont boy who
heads to the Big City to seek his fortune. By guess and by gosh, Alex wins both a well-paying job and
leading lady Patricia Avery thus confounding the local yokels who'd previously poked fun at him. Alex
the Great was adapted by director Dudley Murphy from a novel by H.C. Witwer. As for Skeets Gallagher,
his contract was sold by FBO (later RKO) to the more presitigious Paramount Pictures one year after this
film hit the screens.
