Jefferson Smith - Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Men of action are not solely of the shooting and the killing variety. Sometimes the most important part of the job is just bothering to show up. Jefferson Smith is a very nice looking stooge who surprises all of D.C. by telling truth while holding elected office. Not his truth, mind you, The Truth, for 24 hours until he passes out. To look at him is to see the most reedy, crushable patsy a K Street cruising parasite could hope for. The glory of Smith is that he'd look in the mirror and say the same before putting on his hat and walking to the senate floor.
