As America despaired during the early days of the Depression, Hollywood met the challenge with chorus girls, gangsters, romances, a few dramas of social realism and this one-of-a-kind, thoroughly astonishing fantasy: "Gabriel over the White House". Walter Huston stars as a corrupt U.S. President who has a brush with an angel after a near-fatal car crash and awakens determined to right all America's wrongs - now and by any means possible. Towering like a Yankee Colossus, he sweeps Constitutional safeguards aside to tackle poverty, crime and world peace as a populist dictator, winning the adulation of a grateful nation. Gregory La Cava, who would later score Oscar nominations for his work on 1936's "My Man Godfrey" and 1937's "Stage Door", directed this grandly made, must-see curio.
Presented in Black & White.
