Critics reviews

I was driven to watch it by Donald Ogden Stewart (see Laughter, above) having described it as “the picture I’m proudest of having been connected with—in terms of saying the most about Fascism that it is possible to say in Hollywood.” Whether or not Louis B. Mayer actually walked out of the Radio City Music Hall opening in a huff (as Stewart liked to think he did in his 1975 autobiography By a Stroke of Luck!), the sheer silliness of the story is, alas, what endures.
