Movie Info

Muckraking newspaper columnist Gilbert Nunnally (Philip Ober) wants to ruin a young congressman from Massachusetts, so he assigns ambitious cub reporter Alice Kingsley (Patricia Neal) to dig up some dirt. She approaches the idealistic politician, Joseph Gresham (Van Johnson), and convinces him she is doing a puff piece for a women's magazine. He allows her to shadow him, and she snoops around for any sign of scandal or corruption. Finding neither, she begins to fall in love with her target.

    "washington story" was one of the patricia neal movies tcm played on her birthday this day, before then i wasn't aware what a striking, idosyncraticly talented she had been..."washington story" is that sort of pleasant comedy of congressman falling in love with a female journalist who is sent to hachet some inside story of him..along the course of getting acquinted with the congressman, she discovers he's straight-to-the-arrow decent man america needs...so she's swooned by his integrity as he's infatuated by the touch of class in her....the movie could have been pulled off with more bit of edge and dynamite...van johnson is typecasted as that sort of homely honest goodie-goodie for ladies who admire good wholesome americanistic qualities...anyway. no. the only thing worth watching here is patricia neal who was so damned beautiful and elegant with her deep sexy voice. how come i never noticed before? "washington story" has the framebone of "his girl friday" and "meet john doe", and patricia neal seems to have the capacity to manage that sort of roles which barbara stanwyck and rosalind russell did more than a decade ago...but unfortunately it features a mediocre backset as well as an average leading man (watching van johnson is one of the not so exciting experiences on screen), it's at best a mild slow-paced romantic comedy instead of a smashing classic.
