Mr Deeds Goes to Town

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

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.
