Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

A thunderingly mawkish pre-feminist tract, in which Polly Bergen stars as the first woman president of the United States. A lot of talent that should have known better appears alongside Bergen, including always-watchable reliables such as Fred MacMurray (as the protocol-cursed "First Man"), Arlene Dahl, Eli Wallach and Edward Andrews, but everyone seems to be struggling with the material. Director Curtis Bernhardt fails to find the right screwball tone, and the result is surprisingly witless and cloying. The sets look cheap, too.
