Mr. Smith Goes to Washington Screening

University of Idaho College of Law, Room 313, Boise, ID

The Idaho Legislature has come to town and Mr. Smith has gone to Washington. Who will win when well-heeled political interests want to flood the local scouting camp? How much is this fictional tale like today’s actual legislative process? Mr. Smith Goes To Washington was released in 1939 and is still amazingly current given the prevailing political winds. There will be a brief introduction of the movie and then Q & A following with some or all of the Intro to the Idaho Legislature instructors (Brian Kane, Hon. Grant Burgoyne, Hon. Kelly Anthon, and Professors Ball, Miller and Running).
