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.

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

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

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.

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