Harry Keyishian discusses how films help to shape our understanding of the American political process. He shows how the populist films of the Depression era, with their endorsement of the progressive ideals of Roosevelt's New Deal, gave way to a generally more ambiguous view of politics and politicians after World War II. . . Keyishian points out that despite the cynicism of the post-Watergate era, or perhaps precisely because of it, the reedemer hero of the 1930s has returned. * Film Quarterly, Winter 2007-08 *
