Synopsis of Mr. Deeds Goes to Town

Small-town innocent Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper) heads to New York to collect a $20 million inheritance. There, he ends up a target of ridicule thanks to Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur). She’s a cynical reporter whose demeaning stories have made him the joke of the city. Then, he discovers his sweet and unassuming new girlfriend is actually the hard-boiled Bennett in disguise.

A disillusioned Deeds decides to give his fortune away. But that’s an act of charity his crooked lawyer will stop at nothing to prevent! Winner of the 1936 Academy Award® for Best Director Frank Capra’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is the quintessential screwball comedy.
