Watch The Last Hurrah

"BIG BOOK! BIG CAST! BIG PICTURE!"

This is a dramatic movie about the political implications of the changing world of the 1950’s. A politician is trying to get reelected. Frank Skeffington is running for office one last time. He is getting older and wants just a few more years in office. The majority of his career has been built on machine style politics and using hatred between different immigrant groups to further his ambitions. With the advent of television, that has changed.

Machine style politics were successful before television. A politician only had to persuade a few people who ran an immigrant community to vote for him. These community leaders would then tell their people to vote for that politician.
