As the broadcasting tycoon, Fredric March is excellent, and the scenes between him and Peck lift the picture high above the ordinary.

A surprisingly engrossing, if shallow and overlong, Hollywood vision of 1950s thirtysomethings, with Peck turning in a dignified title role.

A mature, fascinating and often quite tender and touching film.

An overly long movie that really doesn't have enough plot to sustain its running time, but is largely rescued by Peck's excellent performance, and the supporting cast.

far more valuable as documentation of very particular time and place in American society than it is as drama

Relentlessly envelops every idea, obscures every issue in a smug smog of suburbinanity.

But the film is so reductive, so often substitutes subtlety with theatrical gravitas, and so transparently stacks the deck in favor of a preordained outcome that it threatens to become a buttoned-down Reefer Madness for the corner-office set.

The film may seem mediocre now (it did back then), but it probably speaks volumes about the period, and Bernard Herrmann composed the score.
