Through it all stalks a potent personality in Alexander Knox, a newborn star, supported by a flawless cast.

The result's handsome, worthy and solemn.

Much of the film's exceptional quality is due to the performance of Alexander Knox in the title role.

Henry King's treatment of the life of Woodrow Wilson is stolid and respectful; it never dares the intimacy that Ford brought to bear on Lincoln, and so it never achieves Ford's mythic heights.

A lavish biography of Woodrow Wilson.

Zanuck's biopic of President Woodraw Wilson is a typically middlebrow film, made for American audiences during WWII with more concern for patriotism than history or entertainment.

March 5, 2008 Full Review Source: EmanuelLevy.Com

Better than average biopic.

This is an odd sort of biopic, the kind they don't make anymore.

Audience Reviews for Wilson

Well crafted and loving portrait of the 28th president. Gives short shift to Edith Wilson's time basely running the country in her husband's stead when he's laid low by a stroke but otherwise through look at Wilson's life.
