Lessons From An "Old Time Movie"

Having a little time on my hands recently, I’ve been watching some Netflix. Somehow, I came across the title “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is a 1939 American political comedy-drama film, starring James Stewart and Jean Arthur, about one man's effect on American politics.

When it was first released, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was attacked by the Washington press, and politicians in the U.S. Congress, as anti-American and pro-Communist for its portrayal of corruption in the American government.
