Kings Row

Possibly the movie most responsible for Ronald Reagan's success in politics. (He loses a leg and winds up in a wheelchair in this one, declaring “Where's the rest of me?”; according to polls at the time of his first gubernatorial election, some Californians voted for him out of pity for this handicap.) Set in a midwestern town prior to World War I, this adaptation by Casey Robinson of Henry Bellamann's best-selling novel describes the crisscrossing destinies of several locals—including Ann Sheridan, Robert Cummings, Betty Field, Charles Coburn, Judith Anderson, and Claude Rains; Sam Wood directed (1942).
