Advise and Consent

So Netflix doesn't currently have The Adventures of the Wilderness Family, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, or The Adventuress, so that takes me out of the "adventure" movies and into

Advise and Consent- 1962, directed by Otto Preminger, starring Henry Fonda, Don Murray, Burgess Meredith, and Betty White

He says-  Long but engrossing drama of Washington wheeling and dealing, from Allen Drury novel.  Cast is fine, with effective underplaying by Ayres and Tone standing out among more flamboyant performances by Laughton (his last film) and Grizzard.  Also shown in computer-colored version.  3 stars

I say-  I HATED this one.  No idea what happened.  BLECH.  BOMB
