Gregory La Cava's 1933 New Deal fantasy is one of the strangest political films to escape the studios.
December 19, 2008
A unique and somewhat daffy Depression-era comedy New Deal fantasy film.

A classic example of pre-code Hollywood getting away with all kinds of depression-era madness.

Of all the crackpot political films to come out of Hollywood ... this is surely the crackpottest, and must really be seen to be believed.

Gabriel Over the White House encourages its viewers to live the fantasy of the philosopher-king, but never counts the costs of such a regime.

A most interesting fantasy, dated and quaint by today's standards, but most interesting for its time. The idea of a president warring on the underworld and executing criminals has some appeal.
| Original Score: 3/5

Strange film that sees Huston as U.S. president who feels he's being visited by the angel Gabriel. More than topical considering the current prez' religious preoccupations.
| Original Score: 3/5
November 7, 2002
