The Power and the Glory Reviews

    A series of "firsts" (first screenplay by Preston Sturges, first starring role for Spencer Tracy) and a fine performance by silent star Colleen Moore make this a must-see, if only for the film's historical importance.

    Pre-cursor to Citizen Kane: non-linear narrative told in flashback about a wealthy magnate, and there's even a mystery ala Rosebud. Quite well done and surprisingly advanced for 1933, the only weakness is that Willam K. Howard's direction is completely underwheming.
