Small-town honesty and naïvete triumph over big-city sophistication and corruption in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, an endearing and charming screwball comedy that warmed Depression-era audiences, and earned Frank Capra an Academy Award for Best Director. Gary Cooper is simply superb as the innocent Mr. Deeds, a small-town idealist who inherits a fortune, only to discover it's all more trouble than it's worth! Also starring Jean Arthur, George Bancroft, Lionel Stander and Douglas Dumbrille.
