|11.24.07||Netflix|| Robert Wise directs, Ernest Lehman script, William Holden and a cadre of memorable 40s/50s faces fill a board of executive VPs toiling for the top spot after the head of a big company croaks.|
I liked this mostly because of the great script and acting but also in that it's so firmly rooted in its time. Holden makes a huge speech at the end about how companies shouldn't be run by accountants and dividends should not be the bottom line. As I was watching I was thinking about how easy it'd be for Holden to get another job but his loyalty to his company keeps him there.
Pretty good. it has a tiny bit of 12 Angry Men vibe but with business.
