State of the Union Reviews

    especially during this time in our nation's history everyone should watch this movie and listen very very carefully. It draws quite a few parallels to what is actually happening here in the u.s. today. It gives us a clear indication of the paths we should all, as Americans, be seeking today.

    State of the Union is an excellent film. It is about an industrialist is urged to run for President. Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, and Angela Lansbury give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Frank Capra did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of humor and drama. State of the Union is a must see.

    GOP and Dem Debates? Done! This State of the Union is more fun. Hepburn, Tracy, Lansbury, Van Johnson, and Adolphe Menjou directed by Frank Capra.

    One that should be more popular. A gradual build up to a fantastic climax. Inspirational.

    A personal favorite. Directed by Frank ("It's A Wonderful Life") Capra & starring the Tracy/Hepburn team along with a very young Angela Lansbury. If you get the chance, watch this movie which was made 65 years ago and compare Grant Matthews' speeches to the ones you heard during the 2012 Presidential campaigns..

    Approaching melodrama while still maintaining screwball comedy moments and a political undertone, State of the Union is proof that Frank Capra is indeed a versatile director

    If this movie taught me it's that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Politics haven't changed. But still, this was an entertaining movie and must have been insanely controversial at the time. Today, it's like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington meets The Ides of March.
