James Stewart, and everyone else in this movie, does a great job, although I found the pacing to be a bit problematic at times. The ending is sudden and almost unsatisfying, but you can infer the outcome.

I'm sure that this was a landmark and breakthrough film in 1939, and perhaps I was a victim of over-reaching expectations, but I've seen better films.

Director Frank Capra created this wonderful 1939 classic about a young Senator, played by Jimmy Stewart, who go to Washinton to battle poltical corruption. Stewart gives a powerful performance as a senator who in the final part of the movie is filterbusting a wrongful bill. This is Jimmy Stewart at his best. This is the best film about Washington politics. A great film.
