Default 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington'. He says little has changed in our nation's capitol since 1939, and Frank Capra's film is still just as relevant, affecting, and inspiring 75 years after its debut. This is a must own release.

The price is a STEAL on Amazon for this movie in digibook format, IMO.

I think I'm just going to stream this in 1080p on Netflix this time around. I already got the DVD Capra set with the special features.

Great writeup of what to me is an under-appreciated classic. When I first saw it years ago, it was a major eyeopener on the nasty goings on in DC. I had a pretty naive view of the Capital. It gave me a (healthy) skeptical view of our elected leaders. It's hard to believe any politician could sit through this film and still behave the way they do. Hard to believe anyone else could watch and keep electing the same bozo's to office.

So glad this was remastered to Blu at such a good price.

The details state the film aspect ratio is 1.37:1 but your screengrabs are widescreen?

Watched this last night. Good movie but at times I was actually bored.
