He tries with his expected skill to show the desperation of the man, but Suzy Parker DOES offer a multi-layered performance -- far superior to the work she had done in other films. O'Hara is not the great writer he thought he was, but he does tell a story, and boy, in an era of staid propriety, a sure lot of "bad" stuff sure happens in this rather long tale. Given the widespread wasteland of small-town North America now, emptied out by the disappearance of the railroads, the building of the major highways, the sprawl of the suburbs, the collapse of small manufacturing and local business, the destruction of family farms and their replacement by giant factory farms, it's easy to forget how complex and varied was the economic, political, social, and cultural life of smaller centres only a fairly short time ago. This film remains an interesting Hollywood look at the world of politics, and it should not be buried unmarked in the annals of solid craftmanship.
