Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1939. Vintage tinted hand tinted color studio still photograph from the 1939 film, showing actors James Stewart and Jean Arthur walking together on the Columbia Pictures lot.

Controversial among the political American establishment at the time for its (accurate, then and now) depiction of the Senate as a group of dysfunctional, shallow egotists, the film was also banned in fascist countries Germany, Italy, Spain, and the USSR, and, later, Nazi-occupied France.

Set and shot on location in Washington DC.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
