"An idealistic Senate replacement takes on political corruption."

Much, much, much better than the sequel.

Mr. Obama goes to Washington. An ideological senator brings on political corruption.

That was a surreal horror film which thankfully didn’t last very long.

I’ve been enjoying the old Mack Sennett silent comedies they’ve been running on Tuesday nights.

Been grown up for a long time!

Just think about that movie’s message.

Wonderful counterargument you presented!
I didn’t know verbal abuse was so logically persuasive.

Well there's room for more growth. You haven't presented an argument. Feel free to stop posting on my threads.

The most entertaining way to watch is to imagine Jimmy Stewart’s mentor, the senior Senator from his state (as played by Claud Rains), as “Sheets” Byrd (very much a look-alike, IMO) while recalling how much of WV is named for Byrd’s efforts. The film really doesn’t depart much from reality, IMO.

I made a statement.
You hurled abuse!

Do you really want my reasons why I think that movie sends a socialist message? Maybe you just want to call me names because I don’t like your movie?

I will take your advice and not post on your threads, you don’t seem interested or capable of a civil discussion.

All over a 70 year old movie! Amazing!

I like to forget about modern politics and watch Stewart marvel at America’s founding principles.

Me too. I love the role he played in Harvey. "Every day is a beautiful day."

Jimmy Stewart is my favorite actor of all time. It may sound silly but I like him like he's family. Wish we had more of him around nowadays.

I know a woman who, for some strange reason, has gone absolutely bonkers in love with Claude Rains. Yes, I said Claude Rains. She saw him in some movie on TCM, and is now ordering every picture she can find of him online, LOL.

Funny. A real crush. As a guy I guess I can see him charming ladies with his European thing going on.

HE was an USAAF pilot in WW2 and stayed in through retirement. Even while he was making movies he was serving

Jimmy Stewart is my 82yo mom’s imaginary squeeze.

A long time ago it used to be Mike Connors from the old TV show Mannix. Not sure when she dumped him.

Thanks for the alert! I will be DVRRecording. I am listening to braves and st Lou’s game then the next one tonight! This is an alert not a discussion for why you do not like a movie you do not like. Otherwise why do you think it reads Alert. Thanks Vision! I appreciate your Alerts!
