THE LAST HURRAH (1958) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Dianne Foster, Pat O'Brien, Spencer Tracy, Donald Crisp, Basil Rathbone, Jeffrey Hunter, James Gleason
Directed By:  John Ford

NEAR MINT - UNSEALED

“Ford superbly at ease on his Irish-American home ground in an elegiac account of the last, doomed campaign of a New England political boss…Outstanding camerawork by Charles Lawton, and a rich gallery of performances.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out London

“Robustly amusing and deeply touching…Mr. Tracy is at his best in the leading role.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

The legendary John Ford directs screenwriter Frank S. Nugent’s adaptation of Edwin O’Connor’s novel, the barn-burning political film/character study, The Last Hurrah (1958). The singular Spencer Tracy stars as an old-school Irish-American pol, mayor of “a New England City” that just might be Boston; as he faces a potentially rough fifth campaign, he is observed by his journalist nephew (Jeffrey Hunter), fighting charges of graft and abuse of power even as he is assisted and/or opposed by a gallery of colorful characters. The extraordinary supporting cast includes Pat O’Brien, Basil Rathbone, Donald Crisp, James Gleason, Ricardo Cortez, et al; the film was gloriously shot by Charles Lawton, Jr. (The Lady from Shanghai).
