Good Sam (1948) Poster

Sam Clayton has a good heart and likes to help out people in need. In fact, he likes to help them out so much that he often finds himself broke and unable to help his own family buy the things they need--like a house.

7 August 2002 | raypaquin
Most people never understood that movie.
This movie is a satire on the 'Capraesque' genre. It is a satire on Altruism, in the spirit of 'if you don't like the fruit, take a good look at the tree'. Most politically-correct people feel like strangling the hero people he reminds them of themselves. The ending is spoiled, however, by a desire by the Hollywood politically-correct bosses to attenuate the logical consequences to be drawn from the script. In the end, all the hero's "good deeds" are rewarded. There is much evidence that Gary Cooper intended this film to be a satire; his making of 'The Fountainhead' the following year, an extreme right-wing ideological film that was spoiled by king Vidor's misunderstanding of its philosophical contents and his testimonies at the McCarthy enquiry at around that time. Try to see that film with new eyes, at it were.
