Frank Capra continues his streak of good movies with the best one so far: Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. It’s a funny, quirky, extremely moving, and socioeconomically progressive gem starring an incredible Gary Cooper as the eponymous Mr. Deeds and a delightfully complex performance by Jean Arthur. A fantastic film and the first 10 to be awarded by David and Suzan!
Year Eligible: 1936 (Nominated)
