A writer from a small town inherits a fortune and surprises the populace of New York with his goodheartedness and honesty.
Classic screwball comedy. Like all of Frank Capra's films it blends the perfect amount of wit, intelligence and eccentricities.
Watch this version over the immature Adam Sandler remake from 2002.
