STATE OF THE UNION

3:008:00

Monday, October 20

(1948) Behind-the-scenes Republican operators Adolphe Menjou and a pre-nice Angela Lansbury decide airplane magnate Spencer Tracy is their boy; the catch: he’s got to get back with estranged wife Katharine Hepburn. Capra’s adaptation of the Lindsay-Crouse stage smash reversed his Mr. Smith debacle: Truman loved it. Approx. 124 min. 35mm. 

Reviews

“Mr. Capra, whose penchant for lance-busters and reformers has been frequently displayed, has given his most sarcastic treatment to the back-room politicians on the screen.”
