Product Description

Product Description

When a small-town idealist (Gary Cooper) goes to New York to collect a twenty million dollar inheritance, he finds romance with wisecracking journalist Jean Arthur, becomes the target of ruthless businessmen and relatives, and finally decides to give his fortune away because it's so much trouble. This milestone film is one of the most charming and best-loved romantic comedies ever made.


Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is Frank Capra's classic screwball comedy about a village innocent who inherits $20 million, only to discover it's more trouble than it's worth. The screwball in question is Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper), a small-town greeting-card poet and tuba player transplanted to the big city to administer his newly inherited wealth, where fast-pattering, wised-up cynics, sneering society denizens, and corrupt lawyers lord it over the ingenuous and straightforward. Deeds's idiosyncrasies are amply magnified in the tabloids by journalist "Babe" Bennett (Jean Arthur), dating Deeds as a cover, only to discover she's the sap when she falls irresistibly for him. But the damage has been done, when Babe's column is used by a pack of corrupt lawyers, Cedar, Cedar, Cedar & Budington, to prove Deeds mentally unfit. The miracle of this unforgettable comedy is how it embraces dark material, calling into question some common assumptions about capitalism while maintaining an approachable atmosphere of light comedy, and deceptively so. You'll be so pixilated by its charm, you won't rest until you've doodled your way to a rhyme for "Budington." --Jim Gay

This movie is the story of a simple small town man who suddenly ends up with $20 mil from a dead uncle. It turns out however that reguardless of what everybody in NY thinks just because he isn't from the city doesn't mean he is stupid.
Gary Cooper pulls off this movie with his stoic charm. His supporting cast is admirable with the best being Lionel Stander as the street savvy Cornelius Cobb who watchs over him. Jean Arthur plays basically the same role as Mr. Smith goes to washington and is just as good. The whole supporting cast is good and the old ladies at the end are a riot.
The plot line revolves about many different people trying to use him for a sap, and Deeds refusing to fall for it using simple common sense. Time and again he says what most people know but are unwilling to admit in order to seem "open minded". (I'm reminded of a quote who's author I can't recall saying some people are so open minded that they won't take their own side in an arguement"
This movie is very topical for today although I think he would be arrested or comitted or considered judgemental, but rather than getting into the cultural aspects, let me just say that Capra as he always did made movies about the human condition that will never be irrelevent.
A classic buy it.

This is a terrific movie about a man who is literally plucked from his quiet small town life and brought to New York to deal with newly inherited millions. The Gary Cooper character is brave, strong, insightful, and most of all kind EXCEPT when it comes to the legions of snobs, phonies, and crooks he encounters in New York. The first time I saw this movie I couldn't believe how often he just slugged people who insulted or patronized him. The 1930s audiences, though, must have loved seeing the rich stuffed shirts getting theirs in such a direct way. You can quibble about some aspects of the plot line (I too couldn't believe he wouldn't see through Jean Arthur's trickery), but it doesn't take anything away from a great movie watching experience. You just can't help but like these characters and the triumphant ending is perfect. See this movie!

This is quite a moving tale a la american by the master of socio drama, Frank Capra in which he uses one of his fave actors Gary Cooper as the country man who inherits a fortune from a rich uncle and is double crossed in the city. I never enjoyed the first roles of Cooper in MOROCCO, yet it looks like he's been improving his acting over the years and his eyes seem to be brighter and emotional with Capra efforts. Jean Arthur is very good too with her sexy voice and tender love. The cast also includes H. B. Warner as the judge and Lionel Stander as Deeds gardian angel with that frog voice.
Maybe a bit overlong, however it's moving (not as much as It's a Wonderful Life"), , love triumphs at the end, with the Capraesque final act at the court.

Even though we haven't kept most of the old movies that we've purchased, this one we liked and plan to watch again in the future. It's really quite amazing how well this story was constructed and acted out in 1936. The values portrayed are good ones; the importance of being honest, generosity, caring for the needs of others, relationship above material possession. Anger is expressed in violent ways by Longfellow Deeds, played by Gary Cooper, with seemingly little or no consequences, which was surprising to us. We appreciated that there were no sex or foul language. Thankfully, the movie didn't reflect the lack of character and poor values of the main actors, Cooper and Jean Arthur, especially Cooper. I suppose we just took it for granted that morality back then would be held in higher esteem than today. Obviously there were some in Hollywood who didn't observe that standard, even in 1936. Overall, it was an interesting 2 hours of entertainment from a bygone era. We would recommend this to most people we know.

Mr Deed Goes to Town(Released April/36)which won an Academy award for best director,stars Gary Cooper and the(real life)ever-capricious Jean Arthur,in the roles that really put both of them on the fast track to stardom.Cooper was a perfect fit to play the hometown"hick" of Longfellow Deeds,with that stoic,homespun innocence that he could project on a dime.Arthur plays her role wonderfully as the coloured and cynical NYC street reporter,who has earned her rep off the backs of those she has thrown under the bus numerous times.
The plot involves Cooper who is the hometown "poet laureate",so to speak.He devises and writes poems for greeting cards on a regular basis.In his off times he plays tuba in the local band and is a volunteer fire captain.Off in faraway Italy an uncle,whom he has had little to do with his entire life,dies in an auto accident and bequeaths his substantial fortune of $20 million to him alone.The uncle's attorney's switch into high gear in NYC and are determined to get his signature on paper so they may become his legal reps;so they may take him for all he is now worth.They personally bring him to NYC,trying to coerce him every step of the way to sign them up.Soon Deeds is slowly but surely being inundated with either claims to his fortune and/or people who just plain want what he has.
The newspapers are extremely curious as to what this guy is all about and they assign their toughest reporter to the case,Arthur.She gets in solid with Cooper who at first does not suspect a thing,as headline after headline appears in the paper each day,detailing his latest exploits.Over time Arthur falls for Cooper,and visa versa,but Arthur is having second thoughts about the whole thing.
