I work at a movie theatre and in a time of one-week wonders ( yes, one
film with an action star lasted 3 days in our chain !) it is refreshing
to see a film again where the acting is good and the story keeps your
I am watching this movie after not seeing it for 30 years. It made an
impression on me and I started listening to both Gore Vidal and William
F Buckley because of it.
Henry Fonda's character is clearly based on Adlai Stevenson. Cliff
Robertson echoes Richard Nixon so much it is scary. His arrogance is
such that he gives the former President orders !
People decried the smoke-filled room politics of this era but I wonder
if we got better leaders back then. They seemed to make decisions based
on the courage of their convictions and not what the latest poll says.
Fonda's character comments on his ignoring polls, whereas now,
politicians can't seem to brush their teeth without worrying about
public opinion and not what is best for the country.
The actors in this movie didn't need special effects and could ACT
unlike so many of the baby-faced wanna-bes of today.
This movie reflects sex, immorality, infidelity, integrity. God and
judgement day are even mentioned, something that is anathema today. And
what's shown in here shows that times change but one could replace
current politicians for these actors and see them immediately.
Lee Tracy is great in this movie and it could be easily watched for
just his performance.
Of note, is the glad-handing by William Russell at a public pool. No
security guards, no secret service people.
And mention of a nervous breakdown by Fonda's character. Remember
If you haven't seen this movie, see it and Seven Days In May afterward.
It will give you an idea of how poliiics was looked upon in a totally
