Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is the story of a small town man, Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper), who lives a simple life. His uncle dies and leaves Deeds a fortune, so it's off to the big city. Being from a small town, Longfellow is a bit naive to the ways of bustling city life. Consequently, people are constantly trying to take advantage of him, but Deeds, with his small town charm and wit, constantly wins the day. Deeds meets his match though, when he encounters a scheming, up-and-coming reporter named Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur). She plays the role of a damsel in distress, appealing to Deeds' homespun sense of chivalry. Eventually, even Babe falls for Deeds' charm and everything seems to be as it should. There is still trouble though: Deeds must overcome his uncle's shady lawyer, John Cedar (Douglas Dumbrille), who is trying to weasel the fortune away from Longfellow. Mr. Deeds Goes to Town spins a heart-warming tale where simplicity, decency and goodness eventually triumph over corruption and greed.
