Must See: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)

I wouldn't give you two cents for all your fancy rules if behind them they didn't have a little bit of plain ordinary everyday kindness and a little looking out for the other fella too...thats pretty important all that...   
~Spoken by Mr. Smith played by Jimmy Stewart on the floor of the Senate.

Good evening dear Readers, our family has been watching this movie classic with Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur, Beulah Bondi and other great actors directed by Frank Capra.

I have such a burning in my heart when I see this movie!...Perhaps you will too when you view this classic movie great!

In the movie we see the same twisted attitudes and hearts that are just as present today in many places and institutions as yesterday.

Oh me oh my!  Such fabulous quotes by courageous Mr. Smith!  

Another place, another time but very much the same today in many places where it ought not be as I'm sure you will agree.

You will see Mr. Smith reading out of the Bible as he fillibusters...Such a fantastic movie!  So great.

I hope you and your family will also enjoy and be inspired by this movie classic great!

I will have to see if we can find this for our next family movie night. We are trying to watch some classic movies. This one sounds neat especially for us since our family is involved politics.

Oh Abbi, you and your family will love it and be so encouraged! It's also a very sweet movie. Did you know Frank Capra was a conservative? : )

Abbi said...

That is a neat. I think conservatives in Hollywood might be (and were even) a little rare.

Amelia said...

Yes, quite a rarity indeed. Most movies I've seen done by Frank Capra are really nice moral movies as whole. Bless you Abbi! : ) Thanks for your comment.
