Mr. Smith Goes to Washington 
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington review
3.5/4 stars

If you enjoyed The Insider, this will be a treat for you. Jefferson Smith (James Stewart) was elected as Senator with the aid of Hubert "Happy" Hopper (Guy Kibbee). The efficient Secretary Clarissa Saunders (Jean Arthur) orients Smith on how to create a bill. He likewise fancies the Senator Joseph Paine’s (Claude Rains) daughter Susan (Astrid Allwyn). some observations that are unlikely was the kids being violently threatened and hurt, length of the hearing and how the crowd’s reaction were not controlled well during the emotional scenes, which made it into a circus. Exceptional screenplay with lines from Jefferson – “Open your eyes and always see life around you as if you'd just come out of a long tunnel.” “There's no place out there for graft, or greed, or lies, or compromise with human liberties. And, uh, if that's what the grownups have done with this world that was given to them, then we'd better get those boys' camps started fast and see what the kids can do.” and “Love thy neighbor. And in this world today, full of hatred, a man who knows that one rule has a great trust.” Matters of manipulation of power, public opinion, political corruption, greed, lies and truth were explored. Stewart was astounding in his role, Arthur and Rains were superb as well. Mr. Smith goes to Washington had political messages that can be applicable in any country.
