Mr. Deeds Goes to Town

Synopsis: Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper), a resident of small-town Vermont, leads a simple life until he inherits a vast fortune from a late uncle. Soon, unscrupulous lawyer John Cedar (Douglas Dumbrille) brings Deeds to New York City, where the unassuming heir is the object of much media attention. When wily reporter Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur) gains the trust and affection of Deeds, she uses her position to publish condescending articles about him -- but are her feelings for him really that shallow?

CEDAR:

(barely glancing up)

I'm not interested in the

newspapers.

COBB:

But it's a great story. Somewhere

in this country a guy is walking

into twenty million bucks.

CEDAR:

Yes, I know. My first concern is

to locate the lucky man. When I

do, it's your job to keep the

newspapers away from him.

COBB:

(resignedly)

It's okay with me as long as my

weekly stipend keeps coming in.

THE CAMERA PULLS BACK TO A FULL SHOT as two men rush in

with a flurry of excitement. One of them is Anderson, an

obsequious employee of Cedar's. With him is another lawyer,

one of the Cedar brothers.

ANDERSON:

We located him, Mr. Cedar! We found

out where he is.

CEDAR:

Good!

FIRST BROTHER:

Yes, John, we got him.

ANDERSON:

Here's the report: Longfellow Deeds,

single, 28, lives in Mandrake Falls,

Vermont.

CEDAR:

(glancing at the

report)

Thank heaven.
