MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

Lincoln Memorial Centennial! Introduction by Ed Epstein, the Lincoln Group of the District of Columbia

In a star-making role, James Stewart plays a good-hearted naif installed in a vacant U.S. Senate seat who wises up to the political machinery controlling him and fights for what's right. Jean Arthur sparkles as a seen-it-all Congressional secretary charmed by Stewart's decency. The film features well-crafted sets reproducing the look of the Senate floor and gallery, and several key scenes shot on location at the iconic Lincoln Memorial. Nominated for 11 Oscars®, Frank Capra's comedy-drama was a hard-luck loser to GONE WITH THE WIND in most categories. Claude Rains, Edward Arnold and Thomas Mitchell all shine in supporting roles. DIR/PROD Frank Capra; SCR Sidney Buchman, from a story by Lewis R. Foster. U.S., 1939, b&w, 129 min. NOT RATED
