The Hudsucker Proxy

synopsis


Norville Barnes (TIM ROBBINS) has arrived in New York fresh off the bus from Muncie, Indiana. A graduate of the 1958 class of the Muncie College of Business Administration, Norville is ready to start at the bottom and work his way up to the top of the corporate world. Waring Hudsucker (CHARLES DURNING), on the other hand, is heading in the opposite direction. At the very moment Norville lands a position in the mail room of the global super-company Hudsucker Industries, Waring the founder of the company, leaps from the forty-fourth floor boardroom window and lands a position on the pavement below. The board of directors is in a panic. Hudsucker’s death means his ownership interest in the company will soon be offered to the public. There is one man, however, who remains surprisingly calm. Sidney J. Mussburger (PAUL NEWMAN), Hudsucker’s right-hand man, has a plan. He’ll install a complete imbecile as president of the company and devalue the stock so the board can acquire a controlling interest for themselves. But where can he find such a guileless patsy who’ll accept the job with no questions asked? Enter Norville Barnes.

Definitely a Coen Bros. Film

If you a fan of the Coen Brothers you know what to expect with 'The Hudsucker Proxy'. Full of the Coen's signature writing style and eccentric style superbly capturing the feel of the 50s capitalist culture. Not their best film but still enjoyable
