Two Line Reviews - #161

Movie: Mr.Smith goes to Washington (1939)

Plot: A honest and innocent man who values the liberty earned by former great politicians of the USA is elected to the US Senate and he finds that it is corrupt and directed by powers that be. When he is tailored and projected as a corrupt, he fails to back out and plunges into an act of filiburst to get things corrected.

  • James Stewart as the senator Jefferson Smith who fights for his lost cause is at his usual best. Watching more and more of him makes me feel he is a definite contender for the 'Best actor of all times' tag.
  • The role of Jean Arthur who plays his ally Saunders is sweet and enjoyable.
  • The dialogs and the powerful senate scenes are outstanding,credits to Frank Capra.
Verdict: Riveting Political drama, A 'must-watch' classic
