Nominated for five Academy Awards® with an Oscar® going to Frank Capra for Best Director. When country-boy Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper - Best Actor Nomination) inherits a fortune, this small-town tuba-playing poet has to deal with the corruption of city life. This is another gem for director Frank Capra that is sure to inspire and delight. Capra's direction builds every scene, every episode, every character revelation up with rich humor and feeling. The court room scene where Mr. Deeds is tried on insanity, turns the tables on his tormentors -- a scene which violates all court room decorum but contains shrewdly hilarious commentary on foibles of human folk -- will stand as a landmark in evolution of screen humor. Wholesome entertainment for the entire family. They just don't make films like this anymore! Also stars Jean Arthur, George Bancroft and Lionel Stander. This milestone film is one you will want to own! Digitally remastered DVD contains Special Features including commentary by Frank Capra, Jr. Region 1
