MR. DEEDS GOES TO TOWN

12:30    

(1936, Frank Capra) Gary Cooper’s “pixillated” Vermonter Longfellow Deeds inherits $20 million from an uncle he’s never known – and then he’s whisked from Mandrake Falls to Park Avenue before he knows what hit him, as cynical newspaper gal Jean Arthur tags him the “Cinderella Man.” “Capra’s finest film and that means it is a comedy quite unmatched on the screen.” – Alistair Cooke. 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 115 min.

PLATINUM BLONDE
