Starring James Stewart

(1939, Frank Capra) Naive scout leader James Stewart, with reporter Jean Arthur a tart-tongued tour guide, finds Washington ain't all monuments, while Senator Claude Rains and Boss Edward Arnold provide the requisite dishonor to the American way of life. Despite a lust for authenticity, the D.C. premiere occasioned massive congressional backlash. Approx 129 min. DCP.
