In his bio of his father, Capra’s son writes that liberal Hollywood was aghast when they found out uber-director Capra-——who garnered world-wide praise for his talents—— was an arch conservative.
Premier American Director Capra won three Academies and three noms over 40 years, and was a Republican who was active in the anti-Communist cause.
Capra was also anti-abortion and donated funds to support the Human Life Amendment.
Capra was smart too. I believe he was a member of the first graduating class of the California Institute of Technology.
Patriotism and brains......an unbeatable combo!
