4. The greatest man in the world by Thurber, James Publication: Thousand Oaks, Ca. monterey media 2004 . 51 min. ; color , Only the off-beat humor of writing great, James Thurber could bring to life a “hero” like Jack Smurch, played by Brad Davis (“Midnight Express”). Fortified with only a gallon of gin and a salami, Smurch bests even Lindberg with the first non-stop, around the world flight. During the four days he's airborne, this unknown kid becomes a world hero. But, on the ground a young reporter, anxious to tell the world about their new idol, learns Smurch is bad news. An arrogant, illiterate lout with a police record, Smurch's only interests are “parties, broads and dough.” But, the reporter is silenced and Smurch is locked up until the press and politicos can make him into their kind of American hero at any cost.
