9781566396080: Frank Capra: Authorship and the Studio System (Culture And The Moving Image)

Frank Capra's films have had a lasting impact on American culture. His powerful depiction of American values, myths and ideals were central to such famous Hollywood films as It Happened One Night, Mr Smith Goes to Washington and It's A Wonderful Life. These pre-war films are remembered for their portrayal of individuals overcoming adversity, of popular politics and an unflappably optimistic view of life.
