One thought on “Episode 4 – American Political Films

  1. Great choices, with a couple that would be top for me such as The American President and Dave. Mr. Smith would be in my top five, however, if only for the filibuster scene, but I LOVE that movie! Two other movies come to mind for me: Frank Capra’s State of the Union with Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, AND… extra added attraction, Angela Lansbury as the villain; and more recently, All the Way on HBO, which was a great reminder LBJ’s greatness, and his contributions to history, which tends to get lost in in the Vietnam debacle. Oh… one more recent HBO, which may not count, Confirmation. Keep it up guys!
