Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Robert Leffingwell is the president’s nominee for Secretary of State. Prior to his approval, he must go through a Senate investigation to determine if he’s qualified. Leading the Senate committee is idealistic Senator Brig Anderson, who soon finds himself unprepared for the opposition and political dirt that’s revealed, including Leffingwell’s past affiliations with a Communist organization. When Leffingwell testifies about his political leanings, he proves his innocence. Later, however, Anderson learns that he lied under oath and asks the president to withdraw Leffingwell from consideration, especially after the young senator and his wife begins receiving blackmail threats about a skeleton in his own closet.
Plot: Confirmation hearings for the president’s Secretary of State nominee uncover dark secrets from the past.

Effective infighting in an all-star Congress
Allen Drury’s sprawling novel of Washington intrigue gets a bit over-condensed in Wendell Mayes’ screenplay–the exposition comes fast and furious and unconvincing, and some important subplots in the book, such as the space race, are altogether missing. But what’s left is pretty juicy and compelling, as Secretary of State nominee Henry Fonda (top-billed, but with surprisingly little screen time) sets off a destructive round of politicking that ends in death, destruction, and satisfying upholding of the Constitution. Preminger handles the gay subplot with as little subtlety as you’d expect, and while he was clearly trying to show some sympathy to an oppressed minority, he comes off as a square homophobe. Don Murray is oversold as an Ideal Husband and Father to artificially ratchet up the poignancy, and as his wife, Inga Swenson just cries and cries, and seems a shrew and a scold. But the dialog is sharp, even with all the overexposition, and the cast is wonderful: Peter Lawford as a Kennedy-esque Rhode Island senator, Burgess Meredith as a weak witness, George Grizzard as a Roy Cohn-like meddler, Gene Tierney as Pamela Harriman more or less, Charles Laughton as a tasty-ham Southern senator, Lew Ayres as a Vice President with hidden strength, Franchot Tone as the horse-trading President, and Walter Pidgeon as the sort of Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid should aspire to be. Even such solid character actors as Paul Ford, Russ Brown, and Betty White turn up in tiny parts. The cinematography’s clean and uncluttered, and while this congressional bunch is far more articulate and epigrammatic than our own, the theme of backstage double-dealing feels more relevant than ever. Very fast-moving, and dated as it is, it still packs a wallop.

Outstanding Film
Otto Preminger presented to the public in 1962 a great film dealing with a behind the scenes of Washington D.C. politics from the President, Vice President and many Senators wheeling and dealing. The subject of homosexual behavior is introduced to this story which was a subject that was kept in the closet by the film industry in Hollywood in 1962. Franchot Tone, (The President), Henry Fonda,(Robert A. Leffingwell), Charles Laughton,(Senator Seabright Cooley) and Gene Tierney, (Dolly Harrison) and many other veteran actors gave outstanding performances who all created a very realistic government. I thought that Charles Laughton strongly portrayed an old crafty and wise senior Senator and made you want to hate him for this role he created. Great Classic film from 1962, Enjoy.
