Frank Capra should be consider the New Deal’s movie maker par excellence. Depression’ Years needed money and hope at any cost. Frank Capra with his sense of opportunity was the Harry Cohn’s golden boy. Instead of alienated and frivolous musicals he bet on social dramas with happy endings, giving priority to common people. He should believe in American Dream. All America should does!
Without being a narrow mind marxist people have the power over their own decisions in his pictures. With his work was possible to believe in democracy and social justice. Frank Capra’s cinema means good values and hope even though its naive atmosphere. Anyhow his message is so strong that his pictures amuse us till today. AAMF
