A story about this — 3 years ago
When I finished this movie, I couldn’t believe I had never seen it before. The movie is seventy years old and just as relevant today.
I loved so much about this movie. I was sold fairly early on, when, upon arriving in Washington, Mr. Smith goes around the city, visiting the National Archives and monuments. When he announced he planned to take a trip out to Mount Vernon before starting his first day in the Senate, I was in love.
I think we could use a few Jefferson Smiths today. (And no doubt Hollywood could use a few Jimmy Stewarts as well)
