Chicago's Western Suburbs: From Prairie Soil To Prairie Style is the fourth original documentary in Geoffrey Baers highly successful multi-part series exploring the character of Chicago's suburbs.

"There are enough big names associated with the Western Suburbs for a Hollywood- style Walk of Fame," says Baer. "Most people know the familiar stories about Frank Lloyd Wright and Ernest Hemingway in Oak Park, Al Capones relationship to Cicero and Wheaton natives Billy Graham and John Belushi. I also want to tell the not-so-well-known tales about how the Marx Brothers tried to make a go of it as farmers on a plot of land just south of LaGrange and that the inventors of the Mars Bar, the Twinkie and Kool-Aid all lived in River Forest."
