MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:

Highlights of World Cinema


1930s“The American Dream Personified: Frank Capra”


Directed by FRANK CAPRA, 1939/ 2hr, 9mins.

With James Stewart, Claude Rains and Jean Arthur

Jean Arthur, James Stewart and Claude Rains star in Frank Capra's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, the award-winning 1939 classic about an idealistic, small town senator who heads to Washington and suddenly finds himself single-handedly battling ruthless politicians out to destroy him. As Capra began working on the film, it was suggested that Gary Copper, the star of Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, take the lead. Capra selected Jimmy Stewart instead and the film solidified Stewart's movie career, garnering him his first Academy Award® nomination. Receiving a total of eleven 1939 Oscar® nominations (including Best Picture and Best Director), and winning one (Best Motion Picture Story), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is considered one of Capra's, Stewart's and Columbia's finest films. It also marked the end of an era. It was Capra's final film for the studio.
