Brief Synopsis – An idealistic industrialist is convinced that he is the right man to run for president but what will he have to compromise on in his life in order to do so?
My Take on it – This is a movie I have been trying to get my hands on for years and finally tracked down a copy to watch.
I’ve been a fan of Frank Capra for a while now and love most of his movies.
The fact that he teamed up Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn for this movie raises the appeal to see it even more.
In addition, Van Johnson and Angela Lansbury are great in supporting roles.
This is based on a Pulitzer prize winning play and its witty dialogue and great script keep it interesting the whole way thru.
Like most of Capra’s films, this movie has a great underlying message about what’s important in life.
Politics may have changed in 67 years, but politicians will always remain the same.
Bottom Line – Another excellent Capra movie with a great story and an underlying social message. Tracy and Hepburn are great together as always. Excellent script and dialogue based on the award winning play. Highly recommended!
Rating – Oscar Worthy
