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.

Playing the part as if born to it, Cooper is at the top of his game, imbuing Deeds with just the right blend of empathy and intelligence.

Mr. Deeds is really a very intelligent and beautiful affair, a film no less charming than Mr. Capra's It Happened One Night at the same time that it is definitely more profound.

Snappy lines, stellar performances, Capra classic.

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.

A wonderful Capra vehicle; Cooper is superb; Arthur luminous. A comic movie with heart and a point to make. True Capra-corn, and that is not a criticism. A fine example of populist art.
