The Overlooked and Underrated (129 movies items)

" Very poignant film, with a message that's just as relevant today as it was during the 1930's Also has a number of similarities to Capra's later films, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and It's a Wonderful Life. My favourite of Capra's earlier films."

"2.5.2012 Capran elokuva ilmentää osuvasti ja viihdyttävästi 30-luvun alun laman tunnelmia. Huhu Walter Hustonin operoiman pankin livkviditeetin heikkenemisestä saa ihmiset liikkeelle nostamaan säästöjään ja hullunmylly pääsee irti."
