Reviews - What do customers think about Mr. Smith Goes to Washington?

Great Movie, Poor DVD!  Feb 10, 2008
This is a timeless movie that ages pretty well for a 70-year-old film. The story line is still so relevant today about innocence lost and about the underdog defying all odds and who can resist a good David v Goliath story anyway? The script is excellent and so is the acting from the brilliant cast and this movie showed me just how good an actor James Stewart was. This movie is about 2 hours long but you don't feel it as it moves along at a nice pace and is so riveting as well.

The only thing I don't like about the dvd is the poor visual and sound quality which is in the original mono. Many patches of imperfection is present in the video and seeing as how Disney was able to upgrade "Snow White" which is an even older film to Dolby Digital 5.1, at least this option should have been available on this dvd as well. In addition, the special features are sparse with only a few trailers and a very short "Frank Capra, Jr. Remembers" piece and a commentary by the same as content.

Hopefully, a newer, digitally remastered both visually and audiowise version will be released soon. Otherwise, contentwise, this is a very good movie and like a true classic should be will stand many repeat viewings without getting stale.
One of the best  Jan 4, 2008
No need to say anything other then this movie is one of the best. Received quick & no problems with CD. Highly recommended for your collection.
A reminder of what being an "American" really means!!  Jan 3, 2008
This movie should be required viewing for every school-age American child, every person who wants to become an American citizen, and ESPECIALLY for every person who is even thinking of running for elected office in this country. This movie is a gem in every way that is perfectly acted, written and directed. All Americans should see this movie once a year, as it is a clear reminder of what being an "American" truly means, and what too many of us forget and take for granted. Jimmy Stewart is, as always, wonderful. This is arguably his best performance. Truly, an American cinematic gem!
The Political Machine in all its glory  Dec 28, 2007
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington takes us back to FDR's America after the major Republican gains of the 1938 Congressional elections which nevertheless saw the Democrats retain their majority in both houses. A Senator dies and it's up to the Governor to appoint a replacement for the deceased congressman before the electorate has a chance to select the successor. The appointed senator, however, is a romantic and a patriot with nostalgia for the Founding Fathers, and with no experience on Capitol Hill whatsoever. Subsequently, a showdown between himself and his peers may be unavoidable...
The film sheds light on the American system of government and the ever present political machine (including its extensive and excessive power over the press) that seems to accompany governments regardless of the time period in question.
The cast have truly outdone themselves with their performances, which are outstanding to say the least. All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% and it really shows!
The plot, the setting, the dialogues, the language, and the music, are all wonderful!
Very well written and very well presented, it allows for a thought-provoking movie that will definitely provide for an evening's entertainment.
In short, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is a film you should seriously consider adding to your movie collection!
Fair  Nov 21, 2007
This movie is disturbing as it reminds me of my childhood when I watched dumb movies like this. Each character is stereotyped. Acting is over done.
Kids are really smart in this move (as usual) instead of just being irritating.
