TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, Frank Capra Productions letterhead, December 12, 1939. Letter to E. Cowles Andrus, in full: "My warmest thanks for your very kind words about 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.'" In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Released in 1939 and starring James Stewart, the Capra-directed Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was a box office success and propelled Stewart into stardom.
