Directed by the legendary Frank Capra, State of the Union has it all: love, lust and politics. Spencer Tracy plays a business tycoon tapped by powerful party bosses to serve as their presidential candidate. He’s  torn between his convictions,  political agendas and two women.  Katharine Hepburn plays the wife who won’t give up on principles and a shaky marriage. Angela Lansbury adds style and spice as the powerful newspaper publisher and “other woman.”

An event presented by Friends of Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in cooperation with NYC Parks & Recreation and Dag’s Cafe with generous funding support from the Ford Foundation and Turtle Bay Association.
