The President of the Senate is a minor character in Frank Capra's 1939 film, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

He was portrayed by Harry Carey.

Why He Rocks

  1. He really made his limited screen time count.
  2. He's had some hilarious one-liners within the film, such as "The chair recognizes the... uh... rather strong-lunged junior senator", or "Our young Senator will make a good orator when his voice stops changing."
  3. He was shown to be very supportive to Jefferson when the time calls for it.
  4. When Smith was framed for doing a Boy Rangers camp for his own personal gain, the President was one of the only people who continued to support him.
  5. He's one of the most down-to-earth characters in the film.
