🍿 Join us for Wolf-PAC Movie Night as we watch Advise and Consent. The idea behind this night is we would all watch the movie before the virtual event and then have a discussion of this classic film. The movie can be viewed for free on YouTube.
Advise & Consent is a 1962 American political drama film based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel Advise and Consent by Allen Drury, published in 1959.
The film was adapted for the screen by Wendell Mayes and was directed by Otto Preminger. The ensemble cast features Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton, Don Murray, Walter Pidgeon, Peter Lawford, Gene Tierney, Franchot Tone, Lew Ayres, Burgess Meredith, Eddie Hodges, Paul Ford, George Grizzard, Inga Swenson, Betty White and others.
The title derives from the United States Constitution’s Article II, Sec. 2, cl. 2, which provides that the President of the United States “shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States”. The film, set in Washington, D.C., follows the consequences of the nomination of a man with a hidden past for Secretary of State who commits perjury in the course of confirmation proceedings.
