Jean Arthur, James Stewart and Claude Rains star in Frank Capra’s ‘Mr. Smith Goes To Washington’, the award-winning 1939 classic about an idealistic, small town American senator who heads to Washington D.C. and suddenly finds himself single-handedly battling ruthless politicians out to destroy him. Receiving a total of eleven 1939 Oscar nominations [including Best Picture and Best Director], and
winning one [Best Writing, Original Story], this classic is considered one of Capra’s, Stewart’s and Columbia’s finest films.
