Mr. Deeds Goes to Town
1936

This classic screwball comedy features Gary Cooper as a "pixilated" small-town poet who moves to the city after he inherits millions. Jean Arthur is Babe Bennett, the sassy, unsentimental reporter looking for a story. After dubbing Mr. Deeds the "Cinderella Man," she proceeds to lose her slipper to his charm. Our hero finds himself in trouble with the law for his "insane desire to be a public benefactor" until Babe takes the stand in his defense. Bonus points if you can think of a rhyme for Budington.
