adaOn this day in 1961, M-G-M released ADA. Directed by the great DANIEL MANN, this soapy tale of a hayseed’s rise to the Governor’s Mansion and his downfall by association with a woman of the evening is just as juicy today as it was then. The perfect casting included DEAN MARTIN, SUSAN HAYWARD, WILFRED HYDE-WHITE, RALPH MEEKER and MARTIN BALSAM. Delightfully cheesy stuff!
