Academy Awards 1936 - Best Director: Frank Capra
Rating: 5/5 -- It's tough enough to film a credible morality play without being laughed out of town. It's altogether mind boggling to do so and provide a grade A romantic comedy to boot. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Frank Capra's Mr. Deeds Goes to Town features a pair of great performances from Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur, and a story that is partially compelling, but it's ultimately let down by an overlong runtime that the film isn't able to sustain. Full Review
The Blu Spot
Rating: A -- Capra advocates populism and egalitarianism, underlined by values of Christianity. For him, every person is "God's creation" in his/her own right, evert person possesses some talent and should do his/her best with that gift. Full Review
Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, with Gary Coooper as the rube with the heart of gold being sacrificed to the malicious media, is no less outstanding. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
Rating: 2.5/5 -- The tedium of Mr. Deeds Goes to Town outweighs its message of freedom and charity.
...[A] sweetly dated product of the Depression....Gary Cooper reads his Left-ish courtroom dialogue with conviction...
Half an hour longer than the average picture, but, thanks to Frank Capra and Gary Cooper, seems at least half an hour shorter. Full Review
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.
