Advise & consent (Motion picture)

Robert Leffingwell is the president's candidate for Secretary of State. Prior to his approval, he must first go through a Senate investigation to determine if he's qualified. Leading the Senate committee is idealistic Senator Brig Anderson, who soon finds himself unprepared for the political dirt that's revealed, including Leffingwell's past affiliations with a Communist organization. When Leffingwell testifies about his political leanings, he proves his innocence. Later, however, Anderson learns that he lied under oath and even asks the president to withdraw Leffingwell for consideration, especially after the young senator begins receiving blackmail threats about an affair he had with another man when he was in the army. In a challenge to censorial taboos Preminger emphasised the homosexual angle of the story, even including a scene in a gay bar that doesn't occur in the novel.

  • "This video provides a brutal look at the darker side of power and statesmanship as blackmail, scandal and suicide shake the foundations of the U.S. Government. The trouble begins when an unpopular Presidential nomination for Secretary of State sets off a flurry of backroom plots and counterplots, dividing the Senate into violently opposed factions. Directed by Otto Preminger, adapted from Allen Drury's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "Advise and Consent" brought together with stunning effectiveness such great stars as Henry Fonda, Don Murray, Charles Laughton, Burgess Meredith, Will Geer, Peter Lawford, Walter Pidgeon, Gene Tierney, Lew Ayres, Franchot Tone and George Grizzard. The magic of colorization brings a new vitality to political melodrama, giving this classic feature film a contemporary feel that's as fresh as today's headlines."
