| Great Patricia Neal Classic
During the Second (2nd) Inauguration of President George Bush, this particular film was shown on American Movie Channel and since I had never viewed this film, it was a great opportunity. Patricia Neal, (Alice Kingsley),"The Fountainhead",'49, was very beautiful and young in this 1952 film and played a good girl and also a bad girl newspaper reporter who was after Van Johnson,(Joseph T. Gresham),"Clowning Around",'92, who was a young innocent Senator to the Washington circle. Alice Kingsley's main interest was to find some bad past history in his life in order to discredit him politically. There was a very romantic scene where Alice and Joseph have dinner and dance on an old Pirate Ship and seem to be falling in love. Louis Calhern,(Charles W. Birch),"The Asphalt Jungle"'50 along with Sidney Blackmer,(Philip Emery),"Rosemary's Baby",'68 gave great supporting roles to this film and were able to portray the tricky methods that are used by the old time politicians working behind the scenes. If you like Patricia Neal and Van Johnson from their past great films, then this is a good film to sit back and ENJOY.
