Mr Deeds Goes to Town

Before Capra got down to Christmas card morals, he perfected the screwball comedy technique of pursuing common sense to logical ends in a lunatic situation. Mr Deeds Goes to Town is one of the best, with Cooper saying nope to a $20 million inheritance, and newshound Jean Arthur going for his 'inside story': and if you've seen The Electric Horseman, you'll see where it borrowed its ludicrous charm. DMacp.
