The documentary is 3-hours long and I've watched it 4 times. It's that good. You will learn so much about the directors, filmmaking and American history. Here's Frank Capra (right) in uniform working on one of his WW2 assignments.
That tweet's attitude violates the First Amendment in our nation's Bill of Rights.
Frank Capra movies were sentimental and enjoyable. He loved the working class. I call him "The Charles Dickens of Old Hollywood" because of the way he cared about the common man. He also had a keen eye for the political abuse of power and corrupt men slicing away freedom of speech.
With that in mind, I recommend two Frank Capra classics. They are old movies but they may feel achingly relevant today. The first one is... 1939's MR. SMITH GOES TO WATCHING starring James Stewart and Jean Arthur. I wish I could air this in prime time right now on network television.
And there you have it. One Frank Capra classic from 1939. The other is from 1941. Both have elements that will feel timely and relevant today in 2017, in my opinion. Be sure to check out FIVE CAME BACK on Netflix and narrated by Meryl Streep. It shows the awesome light and dark power of film and how it can change lives.
