MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON (Theatrical Release USA 1939)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington—great Jimmy Stewart classic—tells its political tale well. Director Frank Capra (It’s A Wonderful Life) supports meaningful stories. This is a WOW! film despite its age and serves up an honest, deeply thoughtful story that makes a wonderful addition to the family home library.
