Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Instead of a recipe today, I've decided to offer you a movie review.

Last night as part of our unit study on elections, we watched the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" with Jimmy Stewart. Wow. This is definitely a classic because even though it was made in 1939, it is very timely for today. With all the media coverage over the upcoming election, watching this moving was like living it.

In case you've never seen the movie, I have included this clip to give you a taste of what the movie is like.

What a speech! What we need in this country are a few more Mr. Smiths. There probably are some out there, we just never get to hear much about them. I believe we are also using the homeschooling movement to raise up some more of them.

We were able to get the movie through our library, so it shouldn't be that hard to find. Looking for something to do this evening? Find this movie, pop some popcorn and enjoy!

God Bless!

  1. Laura We LOVE this movie. Thanks for the reminder. I think we'll watch it again. His speech is the best part of the movie. We watched it over and over again. Another great "speech", on marriage, is the one Henry Fonda give to his daughter while Lucille Ball is in labor and he's walking her to the car to go to the hospital in the 60's "Yours, Mine and Ours." God bless you! Dolores
