So why is it that a gentlemen auteur from Bisacquino, Sicilia must teach the U.S.A. about its proud heritage in government? Frank Capra did, as well as giving us a healthy dose of family values -- with plenty of pure entertainment mixed in.

Anyone going to see IAWL in the Cinemark theatres on the 18th and 21st this month?  They'll be showing it at 2 and 7 pm.

William, I've never seen Broadway Bill. It's a major gap in my Capra education! You're the first person I've spoken with who has seen it. I'm glad to hear it's good. That means I have something to look forward to! My favorites are Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Meet John Doe, and Lost Horizon. Strange, I know, that Mr. Smith Goes to Washington isn't on that list, but I just like these others better.

I saw on youtube where Barbara Stanwyck attributes her knowledge and success in film to Frank Capra. Capra made the best films!

Thank you William and Patti.

Capra is a director any and all other directors can learn something from.

And we, the film devotees, get the rewards.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)
