Mr Smith Goes to Washington is not about vampires, forbidden love or two people completing each other. It’s still my all time favorite movie regardless. It’s about a man who believes so firmly in what he believes, an average joe who cares passionately about the boy rangers who worship him. No isolation, no ridicule will corrupt him. That is a man I resonate with. Thanks to Jimmy Stewart, a true patriot himself, Jefferson Smith was brought to life, and I could still be inspired some 70 years later.
