[Update: As everyone realized, this is “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” in an image published Sept. 3, 1939, with Edwin Schallert’s story about the current trend in Hollywood of "just what makes the United States tick." Please congratulate Mary Mallory, Jon Weisman, Dewey Webb, Sarah, Dennis Gilliam, Arye Michael Bender, Fibber McGee, Michael Ryerson, Pamela Porter and Ronald Emmis for identifying the photo. ]
