Another Good Movie It Took Me A Long Time To See...

It was recommended that I see "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington". I thought it was excellent. Sure, some of it is a little corny, but much of it is still applicable to today's politics.

For some reason I was under the impression that there was a monkey in this movie.

It's funny, we look on this as such a corny and optimistic movie, but it was reviled at the time by politicians and the DC press because they felt it portrayed them in such a negative light.

As far as the monkey, maybe you're thinking about the movie Reagan was in. Wasn't it "Bedtime for Bonzo", or "Mister Chips goes To Washington", or something like that. No monkey then I'm not LIKELY to see it.

I just saw this movie two years ago! A monkey in it would've been nice. It was spoofed pretty well on The Simpsons with Mel Gibson.

I heard that if you sloooow it down to frame-by-frame exactly 30.75 minutes into the film you'll see a monkey flicking Jimmy the bird from behind a trash barrel.
