Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
The Last Hurrah is a solid political drama, entertainingly assembled by director John Ford and starring Spencer Tracy in one of his most charismatic roles. Though the details have been changed, this is very much a film about Irish political power in Boston. Ford seems to be suggesting that a little bit of corruption makes a city run better. Though his protagonist is a man of compromised ethics, you also get the idea that he's been a good mayor. The supporting cast is a treasure, with many familiar faces in key roles. Jeffrey Hunter and Pat O'Brien handle the major supporting scenes, but some of the film's best moments are provided by such veterans as Basil Rathbone, John Carradine, and Ricardo Cortez.

    QUITE EASILY SPENCER TRACY'S GREATEST ROLE!

    'The Last Hurrah' follows the exploits of mayor, Frank Skeffington (Spencer Tracy). He¿s running for a third term but meets with great opposition from the city council, who don't appreciate his strong-arm tactics and chronic meddling in their affairs. The pack of detractors is led by Norman Cass Sr. (Basil Rathbone), whose youthful incumbent for the post of mayor, Kevin McCluskey (Charles B. Fitzsimmons) seems an impossible long shot. But Skeffington is not above dishing a little dirt of his own on the side. He uses incriminating photos of Cass¿s simpleton son, Norman Jr. (O.Z. Whitehead) to blackmail Cass Sr. into relative submission. Skeffington also gingerly berates the elements of city council opposing him, including news paper editor, Amos Force (John Carradine) to whom Skeffington¿s nephew, Adam Caufield (Jeffrey Hunter) is an employee and sometimes unwilling observer. As Skeffington, Tracy is pure dynamite, delving out equal portions of brutality and kindness in a tour de force performance that quite easily might be his best! There are plenty of finely wrought cameos to go around, including Jane Darwell¿s crotchety spinster, Anna Lee¿s subtle and tender performance as the widow and Donald Crisp¿s stoic turn as His Eminence, Cardinal Burke. This is one heck of a good show! Instituted into the pipeline before Columbia's penny-pinching regime kicked in, 'The Last Hurrah' has had admirable work done on its transfer before being minted to DVD. The gray scale is excellent and the anamorphic widescreen version of the movie is very nicely rendered with fine detail, solid blacks and contrast levels. There is a definite grain structure to this film but it will not distract from the performances. There are no compression related artifacts. The audio is MONO and nicely rendered. There are, unfortunately, NO EXTRAS!
