Advice and Consent (1962) Film Review

Advice and Consent
DIRECTOR: Otto Preminger
BOTTOM LINE:   Preminger always liked to be innovative, and he was with “Advice and Consent” a beautifully written, acted, and directed movie. It also treats its gay subplot with great tenderness and respect with the always superb (and underrated) Don Murray playing a gay senator who is being blackmailed as a new Secretary of State is going through the Senate Approval process. Preminger also likes to play tricks and Anderson’s arch nemesis, a reactionary Southern senator, is played by gay actor Charles Laughton in his final film role.
