“My films must let every man, woman and child know that God loves them.”
Frank Capra, the legendary director of heartwarming films such as “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” fought against the temptation to dilute his values in his work. Capra, a Catholic, didn’t just have to fight Hollywood though. He wrote in a recently discovered manuscript that he resisted the urge from the devil to water down the strong vein of morality that ran through his movies.
