Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (80th Anniversary Edition) - Blu-ray Review

About the Film: When small-town innocent Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper) heads to New York to collect a $20 million inheritance, he ends up a target of ridicule thanks to Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur), a cynical reporter whose demeaning stories have made him the joke of the city. So when he discovers his sweet and unassuming new girlfriend is actually the hardboiled Bennett in disguise, a disillusioned Deeds decides to give his fortune away, an act of charity his crooked lawyer will stop at nothing to prevent. Winner of the 1936 Academy Award for Best Director and now fully restored in 4K, Frank Capra’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is the quintessential screwball comedy, an irresistible blend of laughter, wit and romance.

Our Take: This Frank Capra classic isn't to be missed. I'm a huge fan of the old black and whites and this one is a gem. You may recognize the story from the Adam Sandler remake that was done years back. This original is so much better and the new 4K restoration is amazing. The image and sound are both absolutely crisp and the film is still charming and funny.
