Review
When Waring Hudsucker, head of hugely successful Hudsucker Industries, commits suicide his board of directors, led by Sidney Mussberger, come up with a brilliant plan to make a lot of money: appoint a moron to run the company and, when the stock falls low enough, buy it up, take over the company and restore its fortunes. They choose idealistic Norville Barnes, who just started in the mail room, and Norville is whacky enough to drive any company to ruin, but he comes up with a brilliant idea... 'just, yer know... for kids!' A minor masterpiece.
