The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit

The title of Sloan Wilson’s 50s best-seller became a catchphrase for corporate anonymity, a trait embodied by stolid Gregory Peck in this lush 153-minute ‘Scope drama (1956) about a Madison Avenue executive trying to adjust to life after World War II. The film may seem mediocre now (it did back then), but it probably speaks volumes about the period, and Bernard Herrmann composed the score. Written and directed by Nunnally Johnson; with Jennifer Jones, Fredric March, Marisa Pavan, Lee J. Cobb, Keenan Wynn, Gigi Perreau, and Arthur O’Connell. (JR)
