Movie Info

Steven O'Malley (Spencer Tracy) expects his reporting assignment to be a run-of-the-mill story. He is to cover the death of Robert Forrest, a hero in World War I, who died when a bridge collapsed under his car. The press conference given by Forrest's secretary (Richard Whorf), however, does not satisfy O'Malley, who decides that questioning his widow (Katharine Hepburn) could expose a richer story. The lies continue to build, until he discovers an estate building that may hold the true story.

    The last chapter was unexpected. Refreshing not to always know an ending before it gets there.

    An intense, yet also extremely heavy-handed political drama. It leads on like a film noir with the writer played by Tracy as the detective, trying to figure out a mystery about the famous Mr. Forrest, and then becomes something very outrageous in the end. I enjoyed it, but it is a little too unbelievable, if you see it you know what I mean. Overall it is pretty good, though.

    Somewhat weird downbeat drama, definitely an oddity from Tracy/Hepburn. But still worth a viewing.
