Summary
Based on the true story of Evelyn Ryan, a cheerfully strong-willed mother of ten who compensates for the failings of her alcoholic husband by becoming the most successful "contester" in the country. Between the mid-1950s and early '60s, Evelyn submitted cleverly worded poems, jingles, and slogans in corporate-sponsored contests. Winning everything from palm trees and pogo-sticks to sports cars and cash, she somehow managed to hold the financially desperate family together with happy smiles and a rock-solid defiance
