Wilson

This three-hour biopic was well reviewed in its day and nominated for a raft of Oscars, but the box-office tills did not ring. Knox, more a character actor then a leading man, made an excellent Woodrow Wilson, the President who founded the League of Nations in 1920, only for Congress to vote against US participation in it. Producer Darryl Zanuck, fresh from his experiences of WWII, was keen to make a movie which addressed the problems of the age. The result's handsome, worthy and solemn.
