Movie Info

To pep up his drab image, a bland presidential candidate hires a silver-tongued conman who's his exact double to impersonate him and secure his favor with the public. This first film for stage luminary George M. Cohan features Rodgers and Hart tunes including Somebody Ought to Wave a Flag.

Critic Reviews for The Phantom President

All Critics (1)

  • It came out a horrible hodge-podge, shackled with narrative scenes and idiotic camera work. Nevertheless it is as funny in spots as any picture you will see in a long while.
