It's a Wonderful State Mr. Smith Ep. 44

Frank Capra's films defined Americana in the 1930's and early 40's. An immigrant, Capra films would mimic his own rags to riches life story. He was one of the most powerful directors pre-WWII, only to come back and suffer through the HUAC activity and eventually abandon Hollywood altogether.

This episode I cover the life of Frank Capra and his films Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, It's a Wonderful Life and State of the Union. I covered Arsenic and Old Lace on the Julius Epstien episode and It Happened One Night on the Oscar Special episode, so be sure to check those out.
