My impressions: Fast paced, fast talking, no letup, enough dialogue forthree movies! It's a frank look at the underbelly of politics, the wheelingsand dealings of the back room. Grant Matthews (Spencer Tracy) is the likelycandidate for the presidency but he's filled with such fine idealism that hebecomes more of an encumbrance to his supporters who think that gettingahead means sacrificing one's ideals, pandering to those in authority, orwhatever it takes to gain votes. Enter on the scene Grant's wife, Mary (KateHepburn) who is adamant and uncompromising when she sees how dishonest andinsipid his public speeches are forced to become. But right triumphs in theend.

I must say Angela Lansbury, here in the role of a wealthy heiress, isremarkably poised and mature as an older woman in spite of her youthfullooks -- a very talented lady. Both Adolphe Menjou and Van Johnson keep upthe pace of dialogue and events splendidly as substantial supporting castmembers.

If the term can be coined, this is a "politician's movie" yet still ofinterest to the ordinary viewer.

As true, or truer today, as it was 60+ years ago.Reviewed byJ.S. Bricker, Jr.Vote: 7/10

Sadly, politics haven't changed, and probably never will, in the intervening 61 years since this movie was made. As with most Capra movies, it's not hard to get the message, but that doesn't make it any less hard hitting. Also, as with most Capra movies, it allows the viewer to wonder "what if" if only for a couple of hours. All of the major actors are stellar, but then again, they were seldom anything but in most of their films. It was a little distracting to see Spencer Tracey looking down to apparently read some of his final speech, but the speech and the entire movie were very powerful. It should be required viewing for today's political science classes.
