Advise & Consent (1962)

814cscducnl-_ri_sx300_Otto Preminger directs a political story of devious and ruthless government officials trying to make backroom deals.  The president (Franchot Tone) wants to appoint a controversial man (Henry Fonda) to be Secretary of State.  The action takes place among the Senate subcommittee and the bickering leads to devious games and ruined careers.  Advise & Consent was considered to be very daring and shocking when released.  It still holds up.

Charles Laughton, Peter Lawford, Walter Pidgeon, and Gene Tierney play key roles.
