The Hucksters

Loading...
The Hucksters (1947) is a considerably sanitized version of the best-selling novel by Frederic Wakeman. Directed by Jack Conway, the film is a slick but still powerful, and at times darkly funny, indictment of the seamy side of advertising, radio, and big business. Clark Gable plays a World War II veteran who gets a job in advertising, and finds that his work requires him to often abandon his principles. Deborah Kerr, in her American film debut, plays an English widow Gable falls in love with, and Ava Gardner has one of her first important roles as a nightclub singer who's a former girlfriend of Gable's. In a deliciously flamboyant performance, Sydney Greenstreet tears into the juicy role of a villainous soap tycoon, Gable's major client.

Art & Copy

Loading...
This film is about advertising, that traces the shift from the old boy's network of the '40s to the more "creative," story-based approach of the '60s, when dynamic young men fought conventional wisdom to create campaigns that quickly transcended mere commerce and became pop-culture sensations. The guys behind the ads--the unknown people who've so profoundly shaped our culture--all want to be seen as genius artists, not corporate executives, which is the crux of many problems with the advertising revolution. This film, like a good commercial, is propulsive, filled with eye-grabbing visuals, emotional appeals, nostalgia, and instantly recognizable imagery--a greatest-hits survey of commercials that conquered the world.
