Overview

"Dixiana Moon" is the story of Joe Mahaffey, irrepressible optimist, fast-talking his way from the Catskills to Danceland to the Pioneer Printing Company. High on life, New York City, and Monica, the girl of his dreams, he gets so carried away with his pitches that he begins to believe them himself. Out on the hustle for new accounts he meets Buck Brody, an aging, larger-than-life Southerner. Together they dream up a scheme that backfires. Fearing to be out of a job if he doesn't get Pioneer's investment back, Joe and Monica decide to trace Buck. They finally track him down, only to find he has become "Buck Mozingo" with the Great Mozingo-Arlo Waters Jubilee Crusade and Famous Life of Christ Show, a sure-fire blueprint for disaster peopled with bizarre Bible Belt crazies and smooth-talkers. Buck and Joe then sell and resell anyone and anything, on a mad rush to one of the great surprise endings of all time. Life along the Dixiana Highway is indeed wild and wondrous!
