Plot – A group of financiers and politicians presents a dam's project to the Senate as the construction would produce some profits indeed. One of the senators dies and he's replaced by Jefferson Smith, a honest man far from the politicians' machinations. He ignores the intrigue and submits a bill for the construction of a national field for boy scouts. The businessmen try to get rid of him accusing him of dishonesty and propose his expulsion from the Senate. To defend himself, Smith talks for 26 hours in a row and finally wins the battle. One of his accusers is overwhelmed with remorse and proclaims his own unworthiness too.
