According to early publicity announced prior to JFK assassination, Polly Bergen's wardrobe for the role as first female president of the US was to have been designed by Oleg Cassini, favorite couturier of then-First Lady Jackie Kennedy. For whatever reason, costumes were ultimately designed by Howard Shoup, who received an Oscar nomination for his work. See more »
When Mr. Leslie is examining the First Lady's Office in the White House, he reads off the names of the portraits of former First Ladies on the wall. One of them is "Mrs. Andrew Jackson." Actually, Jackson's only wife, Rachel Donelson Jackson, died in December 1828, after the Presidential election that elected her husband to his first term, but before he was officially inaugurated as President, so she never had the title of First Lady. Instead, Emily Donelson, a niece of President Jackson, served as his social hostess while Jackson was in the White House. See more »
One joke comedy of female President and confused hubby
This is a one-joke film with Polly Bergen as the first woman to become President of the United States and Fred MacMurray as the befuddled "First Gentleman." It runs out of steam early on. An inexplicable Oscar nom went to the costumes, although there weren't any-just everyday clothing. It is worth seeing, however, for Bergen's few scenes as the no-nonsense, hard as nails President in her decision-making sequences. She'd have made a good one!
