Advise and Consent Drawings

Advise and Consent Drawings

Artist Lily Spandorf produced these drawings in 1961 during the filming of Advise and Consent. The film explored Cold War politics and the director was given exclusive access to film in the Capitol Building. It's a must watch for DC history nerds, and has rare footage of the Washington Streetcar and Senate Subway. You can view the full set of illustrations here and watch the film here.
