Keep an eye on Jean Arthur!
Besides a brilliantly written story, and brilliant acting by James Stewart, there is one element of this movie that can’t be overlooked: Jean Arthur’s acting.

With her voice and facial expressions, she pulls you through the storyline. The movie may be about Mr. Smith (Stewart), but much of it is seen through Saunder’s (Arthur’s) eyes. When she falls in love with Smith, we can’t help but do it too.

This is Capra’s opus, and contains not one, but two of the best acting performances I’ve ever seen.

Civics for Dummies.
Boy, do we ever need a refresher course in the subject. 2006 has been quite a year, worth studying in some detail. Congress proposed a bill that would hike the minimum wage for the first time in almost ten years. (Meanwhile, Congress had voted itself almost ten raises in the same period.) Enemies of the minimum wage hike tacked on a repeal of the estate tax for the mega-wealthy, so the bill flunked.

I just give that as an example of how some things worked during this past year, a period in which Congress worked for 93 days. (They gave themselves two weeks off for St. Patty’s day alone.) Anyone who follows the news knows as much as I’ve just written, and in fact I may have added some misleading details out of ignorance.

How can such things happen? If a bill is designed to raise the minimum wage, period, how can an explosive device like a repeal of the estate tax be buried in it? How, exactly, does a bill get “hung up in committee”? WHAT committee, and why? And how come the House Ways and Means Committee is always described in the press as “powerful”? What makes it so damned powerful? All these kinds of issues are raised and answered in a five-minute lecture given by Saunders (Jean Arthur) to Honorary Senator Jeff Smith (Jimmy Stewart). It’s not really as complicated as it sounds. I learned more from Saunders’ little explanation than I did during months of civics in the fifth grade. So much for your class, Mrs. Greene. You never liked me anyway, and to tell you the truth I always found you a little overbearing. And I didn’t care for that business of whacking people with the ruler either.

The movie, as a movie, is informative but sterile. The villains are really villainous — except for Claude Raines, the bad guy who turns good. The issue in this case is hardly one involving life and death. It’s not about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or abortion or capital punishment. It’s about a kind of Boy Scout camp that Stewart wants to build on some unused acres in his home state, land that will be paid for by the Boy Scouts themselves by sending in their nickels and dimes. (“No more than ten cents apiece,” says Stewart.) As in many of Capra’s populist and popular entertainments there are shady shenanigans going on behind all the public nobility displayed. A bad guy (Edward Arnold) intends to build a lucrative dam on that land and discredits Stewart, who is humiliated and scorned by his former admirers. The format is familiar and undemanding.

And of course no one in Washington is as naive as Stewart. The Boy Scouts? Dimes? Are you kidding? But it is SO simple that, like a fairy tale, it becomes gripping. We watch as Hansel and Gretl are prepared to be popped into the oven.

If it were any more realistic, aimed at a more sophisticated audience, it wouldn’t work. The characters and their motives have to be clear and pure. That’s the whole point of the movie. The simplicity leads us step by step through the political process, as an army training film might tell you how to dismantle an M-16.

What realism the film has disappears almost entirely at the end, when Stewart collapses on the Senate floor but is saved by Claude Raines who has just undergone some sort of epiphany. Man, does Stewart suffer through his lone filibuster, his voice shot, two days without sleep, disheveled and shaky, only to be redeemed at the end by Raines. No need to get into religion here but that epiphany and that suffering for all our sakes is suggestive.

I watched it last night after not having seen it for years and expected to be bored, but wasn’t. I enjoyed the film for its entertainment value, and because now I know a little more about how things inside the Beltway can go so terribly wrong.
