Louisiana Purchase Summary

Louisiana Purchase is a 1940 musical by Irving Berlin that is set in New Orleans, and satirizes then-Louisiana Governor Huey Long.

An honest U.S. senator travels to Louisiana to investigate corruption in the Louisiana Purchase Company; the company's lawyer attempts to divert him via the attentions of two beautiful women, but the senator maintains his integrity and ends up marrying one of them.
