The Best Man Reviews
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
Fonda is fantastic as always, Robertson comes off as very unlikable which I think was their intention anyway.
Either way, it's a great underrated movie.
William Russell is a very cool character, and a man of noble qualities we all like to think we would like to have. Joe Caldwell, not so much. I wouldn't vote for any man who refers to himself as "Papa Bear" to his wife.
Very good political commentary by Gore Vidal. There are a lot of incisive quotes. Good stuff, still relevant for today, more or less. Though the smear issues are a little dated, the general issues easily apply today--same ol' dirty game of politics, different era.
