Irving Stone’s 1951 novel The President’s Lady (1953) hits the screen as a fanciful but historically true profile of the enduring love shared by Indian fighter, Tennessee lawyer and future U.S. President Andrew Jackson and the unhappily married Rachel Donelson, respectively played by the well-matched Charlton Heston and Susan Hayward. Jackson’s political rise is shaded by the scandal ginned up by his foes regarding Rachel’s divorce. Henry Levin (Journey to the Center of the Earth) directs this deft blend of frontier adventure and affecting romance, well shot by Leo Tover and scored by the protean Alfred Newman, whose stirring music is available on an Isolated Track.
