Description
American icon Robert Forrest is dead. As the nation mourns, reporters converge on his hometown. Among them is a journalist who discovers that Forrest's widow could have saved her husband. Or did she prevent a fate beyond the country's worst imaginings?

After Woman Of The Year, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn next teamed in this suspenseful tale of wartime topicality about Fascist wolves in sheep's clothing that in many ways - including music, camerawork, and Xanadu-like settings - is startlingly similar to Citizen Kane. George Cukor (later to helm the duo's comedies Adam's Rib and Pat And Mike) directed. Screenwriter Donald Ogden Stewart (The Philadelphia Story) called this "the picture I'm proudest of having been connected with - in terms of saying the most about Fascism that it is possible to say in Hollywood."

        Comments about this product:

        I would only recommend this for those who want to see everything Tracy and Hepburn did together. It builds to an utterly boring climax, if you can even call it a climax. It aims to be an anti-fascist film, but because of the times, it was presented far too subtly. It would have benefited greatly from flashbacks.

        It's Tracy and Hepburn. What more do you need?

          Comments about this product:

          This is a darker Tracy/Hepburn pairing than most, with a very serious political theme. It is rarely shown and not one of their best known films. Totally worth the time--an excellent and engaging story.
