Movies Advise and Consent (Columbia 1962, Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton) Published 4 months ago on January 13, 2019 Preminger’s political thriller examines the dark side of politics and its tragic personal repercussions for an essentially decent man. When a President nominates a controversial candidate for Secretary of State, the political dealing and infighting begins as dissident legislators are willing to stoop even to blackmail to stop his confirmation?or assure it. Preminger seemed to hit his stride lending a documentary tension to legal or political settings, and this is one of his best. Charles Laughton made his final screen appearance in Advise and Consent, playing Senator Seabright “Seb” Cooley, the aging Dixiecrat from South Carolina. production details USA | Columbia | 139 minutes | 1962 Producer and Director: Otto Preminger Original Story: Allen Drury Cinematography: Sam Leavitt Editor: Louis R.
