When Lonesome Rhodes is critiquing Senator Worthington Fuller's presentation style, the camera angle switches several times. From the front, his left arm/hand is pointed towards the ceiling; however, the reverse angle shows his left arm lowered and pointed to the side. See more »
One of the best pictures I've seen to date. Griffith had the part of the womanizing, opinionated, lazy, loud mouthed bum down pat. In fact, the entire cast was superb in this dynamic, gripping, and in the first half, uproariously funny drama which clearly shows how ego can not only destroy the egotist but those close to him. This film is an equal to Griffith's fine performances as Horton Maddock in "Savages" and Howard Pike in "Hearts of the West". 4 stars.
