In this piece of Frank Capra Americana, a governor appoints idealist Jefferson Smith (James Stewart), founder of the Boy Rangers, to a vacant US Senate seat. When Smith writes a bill to create a National Boys’ Camp, corrupt senators try to discredit him because they want the land Smith has chosen for a lucrative dam project. A Senate staffer (Jean Arthur) suggests Smith  filibuster to get his bill passed, leading to the famous scene that made James Stewart a star.
