"...[A] sweetly dated product of the Depression....Gary Cooper reads his Left-ish courtroom dialogue with conviction..."
Description by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:
When a small-town idealist (Gary Cooper) goes to New York to collect a twenty million dollar inheritance, he finds romance with wisecracking journalist Jean Arthur, becomes the target of ruthless businessmen and relatives, and finally decides to give his fortune away because it's so much trouble. This milestone film is one of the most charming and best-loved romantic comedies ever made.
When a rich eccentric decides to give away his money -- all $20 million of it -- no one believes he can possibly be sane. Soon he's facing a hearing to determine whether he's mentally competent. But the wealthy, wily man may just be the one who has his head screwed on right.
