This 1937 MGM film was, I take it, a major bomb at the time of its
initial release. Certainly, this blend of historical drama, tearjerker
romance, and fuzzy politics could not have been considered commercial
even back then. That probably explains the casting of two of MGM's
biggest stars, Clark Gable and Myrna Loy, in roles that they were
ill-suited to (to say the least)--an effort to offset the uncommercial
nature of the project with star power. Could there have been a more
archetypical (is that a word?) American actor than Gable? Here, he
doesn't even attempt an Irish accent; he is uncharacteristically
ill-at-ease and the scenes toward the end of the film when his
character is supposedly in failing health are laughable (Gable never
looks less than robust). Loy fares only slightly better--she was a chic
and witty actress, but here she goes the teary, noble route with blah
results. Only the great character actress Edna May Oliver, with her
horsey face and tart manner, manages to make anything of her scenes.
MGM would have done better casting, say, Spencer Tracy and Maureen
O'Sullivan (both of whom, I think, were under contract to the
studio)--at least they would have been more believable in the parts,
though the basic problems of the film (lacklustre direction and a
screenplay that tells us very little about the titular character and
his politics) would have remained.
