I can see why this film was a bomb in its time and is all but forgotten today. I just saw it for the first time, and on a big screen.
I left after about 40 minutes. There simply wasn't one interesting or dramatic scene. Wilson was depicted as a wooden saint, and everything he wanted -- getting nominations, passing bills -- happened without any apparent effort by him as he sat quietly in a room and waited for everyone to come to their senses.
This film to be epitomizes the word dull. I can see why it's forgotten. It is simply bad bad bad bad bad.
I just added those to get to 10 lines. This film isn't worth spending more time talking about
