The darkest Tracy/Hepburn film I have ever seen. Timely and socially important, this film looks closely at the manipulation of public opinion. Even though American history ignores its home grown fanatics, this film must have been a wakeup call for many in 1942. One man has his American Dream although his plan might be for the ultimate takeover of the country. ~Mike
Released in 1942
