Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
When my 9th grade government teacher announced we would be watching Mr. Smith Goes to Washington in class, there was such joy in his eyes that I was instantly intrigued. This Frank Capra classic presents Jimmy Stewart in his signature role. A unique twist of the David and Goliath archetype, Capra's tale of Jefferson Smith (Stewart) and the power of one voice is timeless. It is one that every American absolutely must see.
