Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is a 1939 political drama film, with Jean Arthur and James Stewart in the lead roles. The film revolves around one man's effect on American politics.

A remake was later made with Mel Gibson, although the Filibuster scene was infamously changed to resemble a mindless action flick where Gibsons character, after collapsing on the Senate floor, abruptly commits manslaughter in the entire congress before being carried out of the room by happy children. This change had been made at Homer Simpson's behest, and likewise resulted in the remake being hated by the movie viewers upon its premiere, with James Stewart's granddaughter even going as far as to threaten to sue Homer and Mel Gibson for the disrespectful treatment of his work.
