Description by OLDIES.com:
The story of The President's Mystery, originally published in "Liberty Magazine," was conceived by Franklin D. Roosevelt and written in collaboration with six highly regarded authors of the day (including S.S. Van Dine, the creator of Philo Vance). Versatile Henry Wilcoxon enjoyed a long career in film, starring in Cecil B. DeMille's Cleopatra (1934), The Last of the Mohicans (1936), A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949) and working into the early 1980s with a memorable comedic role in Caddyshack (1980) as a bishop who gets struck by lightning. Tony Award winner Sidney Blackmer played Teddy Roosevelt in seven movies, with notable roles in Little Caesar (1931) and Rosemary's Baby (1968).
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 4 ratings.
I'm confused. I don;t know what to make of this movie. The case cover calls it a Tale of Suspense but I found nothing suspenseful in it. It's more of a New Deal pep talk than anything else. FDR is claimed to have conceived thd idea for the story. Good thing he was better at being President than conceiving mysteries.
