* CommunityThreateningConstruction: The main source of conflict in the film version involves banker and defense contractor Anthony Kirby buying up all the land around a competitor's factory in order to put him out of business. He is all set to dispossess all the renters in the neighborhood, but he needs to buy the house of {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Martin Vanderhof, and Martin doesn't want to sell. (This plot element was an addition not found in the source play.)

* StrawmanPolitical: Mr. Henderson, the IRS agent. When he interviews Martin about his 24 years of income tax evasion, at no time does he present a reasonably persuasive argument about paying taxes such as supporting the New Deal programs that unemployed people like Donald are using to get by. Instead, he blusters impotently about relatively remote aspects of government and tries to throw his authoritarian weight around.

The film won the AcademyAward for Best Picture of 1938, as well as Best Director for Creator/FrankCapra; it was Capra's third award in five years after previously winning for ''Film/ItHappenedOneNight'' and ''Film/MrDeedsGoesToTown''. It was also something of a StarMakingRole for Stewart, who had been working in Hollywood since 1935 but saw his career really start to take off following this film.

* WhileRomeBurns: The second act of the play ends with a lot of fireworks exploding offstage and a lot of people wildly shouting and rushing about onstage. The imperturbable Grandpa, however, just says "Well, well, well!" and sits down. "If a lot of people weren't in the way," the script suggests, "you feel he'd like to throw some darts."
