Mr. Smith Goes to Washington 1939

From Amazon: Political heavyweights decide that Jefferson Smith (James Stewart), an obscure scoutmaster in a small town, would be the perfect dupe to fill a vacant U.S. Senate chair. Surely this naive bumpkin can be easily controlled by the senior senator (Claude Rains) from his state, a respectable and corrupted career politician.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/21/2007)
