Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
- 2h 10m
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
This essentially plain, powerful presentation of an implicitly American story about a boy who got into Congress on a pass and stayed in to whip the gas house gang under their own rules is by any and all measures Mr. Capra's greatest picture.
This contender for Academy honors has warmth as well as wit, beguiling charm as well as pointed satire, and it rekindles a few patriotic ideals that have long slept un der the smothering blanket of political scandals and governmental misdeeds.
