Keeper of the Flame

Film

 

Time Out says

Bizarre political melodrama which has its eye firmly glued on Citizen Kane as Tracy's reporter arrives at another Xanadu, gleans another mess of information for his biography of a Great American Citizen who has died in mysterious circumstances, and learns - having fallen for the widow (Hepburn) whose reticence he misinterprets - that his hero had feet of Fascist clay. It works well if rather stiffly for a while, with excellent performances (Wycherly and da Silva are outstanding), but blows up into absurd histrionics and naive propaganda.
