    They say history repeats itself, and this film is a testament to that. The themes of bank greed and the everyday guy versus rich Goliaths ring as eerily true today as they did in 1932. Walter Huston plays the banker with a heart to perfection. He's as good here as he was in "Dodsworth," "Treasure of the Sierra Madres" and "The Devil and Daniel Webster." The script is excellent and the bit characters, though a little dated, are terrific, too. If only there were a real-life bank president out there who had the same faith in honest people as Huston's character does.

    I have always been a fan of Frank Capra. After watching American Madness, I just became a bigger fan. The themes that Capra used are as reverent today as they were back in the 30's and 40's. TCM should show more movies like this, movies that you can't find anywhere else.

    I have just seen American Madness and I must say that this is Capra's best picture befor he won all 5 oscar's for It happened one night. The cast includes many great actor's like Gaven Gorden and Pat'O Brain. Overall I give this movie 8 out of 10 stars. I hope you will enjoy this film.
