Broadway star Max Figman managed to headline several big-budget films during his brief tenure in the motion picture industry, of which The Truth Wagon may well have been the best. Figman doubled as star and director in this adaptation of a stage play by Hayden Talbot. The star plays an indolent young millionaire who gives up his hedonistic lifestyle for the love of a good woman (Lolita Robertson, Figman's favorite leading lady). Like Charles Foster Kane, our hero assumes control of a daily newspaper, renaming it "The Truth Wagon" and transforming it into a bastion of honesty and reform. The Truth Wagon was produced by the grandiosely yclept Masterpiece Film Corporation.
