Directed by the great Frank (It Happened One Night, You Can’t Take it With You, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) Capra, State of the Union is another of Capra’s celebrations of the triumph of goodness over evil, of justice over deceit, and the resounding rightness of the American political system. The film’s extra dividend are its stars, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. He’s an industrialist who ends up running for President and she’s the estranged wife who nonetheless comes to his aid. Literate, entertaining, and emphatically relevant.
