‘Mr. Deeds Goes to Town’


The third of our four-film Depression comedy series at the Ontario City Library screens tonight: Frank Capra’s 1936 romantic comedy “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town.”

Longfellow Deeds is a tuba-playing dreamer in tiny Mandrake Falls, Vt., who inherits $20 million and stumbles around wondering what to do with his newfound wealth. The movie stars Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur. Read more about it here.

The movie screens at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of the library, 215 E. C St. See you there?
