About the Production:
Man of the People is inspired by the true story of Dr. John Brinkley, a huckster of the medical profession and radio pioneer who fakes his way to fame, notoriety, and politics until he is brought down by his own ambition. Made famous by a sham cure for male impotence, Dr. Brinkley catapults himself to stardom through his command of American radio, but Dr. Fishbein, of the newly founded American Medical Association, is determined to expose Brinkley. Despite Fishbein’s best efforts, Brinkley escapes justice at every turn until the truth catches up to him.
