A Pure Heart and Strong Morals Are the True Keys to Happiness.
Frank Capra (Oscar-winning for directing) created one of the earlier Hollywood masterpieces with “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town”. The film follows a good-hearted small-town Vermont man (Oscar-nominee Gary Cooper) who inherits a fortune from a relative he never knew. Now he must go to New York and take over his late uncle’s estate, but he must also contend with a whole host of opportunistic bigwigs who want to take advantage of Cooper’s kindness. Cooper is not as slow-witted as he appears though as he seems to outsmart all those around him. When reporter Jean Arthur comes along, Cooper falls hard for her and lets his guard down and forgetting himself, he may lose a part of himself that is priceless. Frank Capra dominated the 1930s and 1940s with life-affirming productions that were just simple human stories that would always strike emotional nerves for the audience. “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town” is no exception. The remake should cause many to check this one out. This one stands up much higher than Adam Sandler’s under-achiever. 5 stars out of 5.
This really is is what being human is all about !
Unvrivalled in the history of cinema and having just watched it again for the umpteenth time, I thought a short review on IMDb was necessary. I have watched the film regularly for the last twenty years and never tire of its humour, its tenderness, its wit, its romance, its general actors’ performance and the originality of its subject matter. Never have tears and laughs been so much intermingled in the same film..I was gushing tears in the scene where Deeds hands a poem which Babe reads in the fog on her doorstep … a few minutes later Deeds goes running off home, tripping up over a dustbin in the process and I was howling with laughter … likewise the long passage in the courtroom when Deeds finally decides to “speak up” has me in fits of laughter over its finesse and wit. The final scene, where Deeds comes back to the almost empty courtroom to “collect” Babe who had been sitting by herself there once again started off my waterworks as he picks her up and tenderly embraces her all over the place. Indeed that final “kiss” is one of the photos featured on France’s 3rd TV channel’s “Cinéma-Club” on most Sunday nights.
They are truly indeed a BEAUTIFUL couple in all senses of the world. I will not go through the story of the film again as this has been more than amply related by others but suffice it to say I have never seen any other film made with quite this calibre and actors’ performance. Ineed this is the type of film that could only be made once ! Each character is extremely well developed and each actor/actress has exactly the physique of the character they play – an absolutely perfect match, one of those “one-off” films where everything combines to make for the spectator’s perfect pleasure.
What a shame that in the twenty first century we cannot produce films of this calibre using story line, actors’ performance and plot alone – to obtain thrills from present-day audiences, large quantities of excessive noise, flashing lights and especially computer-generated imagery are necessary …. all this at the expense of plot and of the humour and witty lines. But, with modern technology being a double-edged knife, we should nevertheless thank God for it’s enabling us to henceforth be able to appreciate these “golden oldies” for years to come !
