Description

    Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (Columbia, 1936). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    In this wonderfully endearing Frank Capra comedy classic, Gary Cooper (Longfellow Deeds) plays a gentle soul who is most content when writing corny poetry and playing the tuba in his home town of Mandrake Falls, Vermont. After Deeds inherits 20 million dollars from an uncle, his life is turned upside down. He is swept away to New York, where he quickly becomes ensnared in all sorts of problems that face the idle rich. Jean Arthur is wonderful as the street smart, cynical newspaper reporter (Babe Bennett) who falls in love with the newly-rich, naive Deeds while getting an inside scoop and poking fun at him in her newspaper. Soon Deeds becomes disenchanted with the corrupt ways of the big city, and all the troubles that come with inheriting a fortune, and is determined to give away his millions to the less fortunate. This share-the-wealth philosophy was a huge hit with Depression-era audiences. Fans and critics alike loved this film, with the movie receiving five major Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Cooper with his first Oscar nomination), Best Screenplay (Robert Riskin), Best Sound Recording, and Best Director (Capra). Capra would win the Oscar, making it his second after It Happened One Night. This wonderful title card had pinholes in the borders, a tear in the credits area and a small tear in the top border, all issues which have been expertly addressed through professional restoration, making this title card an absolute treasure for any collection. Fine.
