A fighting, laughing, aggressive, American city.
Dion O'Leary is a devious playboy with a hot girlfriend and free reign over 1867 Chicago. His brother, Jack O'Leary is a politician held in high regard in Chicago. Dion pulls some cards and helps Jack become mayor of the city; however, once Jack is in the big chair, he may not be able to allow his brother to have free reign over the city.
"You're mayor but I'm Chicago. Don't make me kick you out."
Henry King, director of Twelve O'Clock High, The Song of Bernadette, The Carousel, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Tender is the Night, The Earth is Mine, and The Sun also Rises, delivers In Old Chicago. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and contains fantastic characters. I adored the character development and how the story unfolds. The cast is magnificent and includes Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Don Ameche, Andy Devine, and Brian Donlevy.
"Where is he going, anyway?"
"Where are any of us going?"
I DVR'd this picture because it stars one of my favorite actors, Tyrone Power. The film is fairly interesting and contains a unique storyline and depiction of Chicago. The film comes together wonderfully and the ultimate conclusion is climatic and a nice depiction of the city. This definitely isn't the best Tyrone Power movie but it is a good one.
"She's pretty...in a way."
