Film Synopsis
A mercilessly lucid analysis of American politics and its
taboos, directed by Otto Preminger, one of the greatest
directors from the golden age of American film. Also the
last film featuring an unforgettable Charles Laughton.
When Robert Leffingwell, a close advisor to the
President of the United States, is appointed Secretary
of State, the Senate has its suspicions. A sub-committee
is charged with investigating Leffingwell’s supposedly
Communist sympathies in his past, and in the Senate
a political struggle inevitably ensues. The man who
has the most to lose from the intrigues is the head of
the sub-committee, Senator Brigham Andersen, who is
hiding a youthful homosexual dalliance.
