Pamela Geller suggests perfect Saturday Night Cinema for this moment in our history: 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,' with James Stewart

11/5/16, "Saturday Night Cinema: "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," with James Stewart and Jean Arthur," Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller's Saturday Night Cinema offering is 1939's "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," with James Stewart-the perfect choice for what's ahead of us this week. Her site provides a link to the movie, its NY Times review in 1939, and comments by Pamela. I'd copy them here but, for whatever reason, I've never been able to copy and paste text from her site. IMDB page, "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington."

Tonight’s Saturday Night Cinema classic is a  tribute to the once great American ideal of free and fair elections, and a government by the people, of the people for the people. A quaint and archaic idea in today’s era of leftist totalitarianism, corruption and criminality.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is the story of one man who believed he could make a difference, and in doing so, stood up to the entire United State government. A great story about how the American rule of law works and how one man can bring change the course of human events.
This Washington morality tale is more prescient and pertinent than ever. Demonstrating that the greatest political evil is indifference, this appeal to a world on the verge of war has lost none of its relevance 60 years on. Indeed, the political corruption depicted in the film looks like romper room next to the Clinton pay for play crime syndicate.
