When 61-year-old Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. arrives in Washington DC in 1902 to take his seat on the Supreme Court, he worries that he may be to old to achieve much. But his wife Fanny will hear no such nonsense: “It’s never too late for those who love a good fight, for those who keep on looking ahead!” Fanny is right. Holmes will remain on the Court for 30 years, helping bring about momentous changes in the law of free speech, labor relations and other vital issues. But one thing would never change – the bedrock devotion Holmes and Fanny shared. Louis Calhern reprises his famed Broadway role (earning a 1950 Best Actor Oscar nomination) as the Great Dissenter in this moving, lively and often humorous biography of The Magnificent Yankee.

    Comments about this product:

    This is a 1950 drama and biographical movie on Oliver Wendell Holmes, starring Louis Calhern and Ann Harding.

    I saw this movie on TCM introduced by virtually the only woman guest programmer. She picked marvelous choices! So I purchased this DVD without waiting for it to go a big sale!

    The story was fascinating to watch 1902 to 1932, the 3 decades. Plus, watch all the young lawyer assistants pass thru the doors of his home. The Supreme Court gave this man a new life interest.

    I you invite to watch. Plus, I wish TCM would bring back this lady for another round of picks.
