4: “Wilson” Is a Technicolor God

4: “Wilson” Is a Technicolor God

In the fourth episode of Silver Screens & Politics, Brett Stewart and Dominic Cichocki delve deep into ‘Wilson,’ the 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic directed by Henry King. While it bombed at the box office, the shiny, oh so shiny, portrait of the 28th president of the United States won a slew of Academy Awards, including honors for screenwriting and special effects. At two and a half hours long, ‘Wilson’ is an interesting spectacle, but one that is often devoid of substance in lieu of aggrandizing Wilson’s tenure in the highest office in the land. Next week, join us for ‘The Bystander Theory.’ A note: good luck finding the film. At the time of recording, it was only available to rent in The Windows Store. Now, it’s not even there. Needless to say, it’s pretty bad.
