This Frank Capra classic stars Jimmy Stewart as a young man who’s tricked by a corrupt Senator and a greedy, powerful lobbyist. MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON demonstrates that the little guy can stand up to big government. A watershed movie for the average citizen and for clean politics, it serves as an example that Big Government cannot crush the human spirit. It also shows that evil prevails when good people do nothing. MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON continues to sound a clarion call for ethics, morality and integrity in our highest offices.
